Panorama picture from Nissedal Municipality in Norway


The district centre is Treungen. The Nisser lake at 37 kilometres long is the largest in Telemark and the seventh largest in Norway. There is a small chain ferry, the "M/F NISSEN" which crosses over from Sundesodden to Fjone on the west shore, where there are fine, shallow beaches with good swimming and sunbathing, ideal for families with children.

There are 1,750 lakes in Nissedal. Nisser is the largest of the lakes within the municipalities and, at the last count in 1991, there were 3.9 million fish in the lake. You can, of course, also find your own "secret" fishing lake - many of them even offer excellent opportunities for ice fishing.

Please show respect for any "fishing forbidden" notices. You will find whitcfish, perch, char and trout, and permits may be purchased from the Tourist Intormation Centre and from local petrol stations.
