Vestfjella

Show map

The Vestfjella lake district is a forest area in western Aremark Municipality. The area is generally untouched and exudes a sense of wilderness. The district comprises 90 fishing waters with around 2 000 ha (4500 acres) of water, something that makes this district an exciting for fishing with many good lakes.

The area is unique in its numerous small lakes in a relatively small area. At 200-250 metres above sea level pines dominate and you can find your peaceful ‘own fishing hole’. The district is arranged well with a road into central areas, your own experience fishing guide and docks for functionally challenged fishing enthusiasts.
