WHAT TO SEE
ABOUT THE REGION
Nordfjord is a veritable Eldorado for angling in lakes and rivers. The municipalities of Gloppen, Stryn, Eid and Hornindal issue a joint fishing permit for inland fishing that covers more than 500 lakes and rivers. Fishing permits are available for salmon and trout in ten or so river systems.
Up the fjord arms and valleys you will find large, deep "fjord lakes" offering good inland fishing. These often have good stocks of trout and char. There are also many good fishing lakes and rivers throughout the region, both in lowland areas and up in the mountains. Angling is a pleasant and useful outdoor pastime that we want as many people as possible to take part in. Our dual aim is to conserve our valuable fish resources and to ensure that everyone can enjoy a pleasant fishing trip. It is important that anglers are aware of their responsibilities and show consideration to each other, to other users of our natural resources and not least to the natural environment itself.
Surrounded by tall mountains, Breimsvatnet lake in Gloppen is a favourite subject for photographers. You can try your luck at fishing or enjoy a swim. Fishing license can be bought at Esso in Byrkjelo or Coop in Byrkjelo or Reed.
