Bygland, in the middle of Setesdal

The lake Byglandsfjord is 34 km long and is a part of the river Otra. This gives wonderful recreation opportunities in idyllic surroundings. Enjoy one of the great swimming and sunbathing spots along the lake; and if you prefer fishing, the local catch includes trout and a dwarf salmon strain known as "bleke". If you want to see the lake from a different angle, the steamboat "Bjoren" has a sightseeing route every Sunday during the summer.
The magnificent waterfall Reiårsfossen is located in Bygland and can be seen from a nice picnic spot by the road.
