Eidsfoss is a fantastic starting point for canoeing. After all, Lake Eikeren is a hidden gem, with its pure drinking water, beautiful scenery and nice campsites. However, it is important to respect the weather in such a large lake. If the north wind is howling, it is good advice to put the canoe on a trolley and rather go to the Bergsvannet.

In Bergsvannet the fish is the easiest to get on the hook. A bit of perch and pike are something you can hope for here, and Bjørkøya is a natural target for rest and camp life. On warm days, you will find bathing opportunities several places. At Eikeren, we can erecommend the beach ‘Sandvik, a few hundred meters west of Eidsfoss. Three new gap hawks will rise in the area this summer, making the fine sandy beach and forest areas around even more attractive.
