 Numedalslågen river

Numedalslågen river stretches for over 250 kilometres through the counties of Vestfold and Buskerud, beginning at the Hardangervidda plateau and meeting the ocean at Larvik. Numedalslågen is one of Norway´s longest rivers.

The rivers runs through the municipalities Larvik, Lardal, Kongsberg, Flesberg, Rollag and Nore & Uvdal. These municipalities cooperate in the administration and use of resources connected to the river in various projects under the Green Valley (Grønn Dal) umbrella.

There are a number of hydroelectric plants located in the higher range of Numedalslågen. Most of the power potential of the main river is developed, except the stretch between Hvittingfoss and Larvik and Godfarfossen in Dagali.

Nore I kraftverk, the first power plant built in the Nore utilized Norefallene between Tunhovdfjorden and Rødberg. It was completed in 1928 and was designed by Norwegian architects Carl Buch and Lorentz Harboe Ree. Nore II kraftverk utilizes drop between Rødberg dam and Norefjord and was completed in 1947.

The Brufoss area includes some of the best fly fishing stretches on the river Lågen. Brufossfisket organizes landowners on both banks of the upper 12 km of the salmon-bearing section of Numedalslågen. On certain stretches and for special water levels it might be advisable to use wading equipment. We have one specially arranged fishing site for handicapped persons at Lindsverklegga.
