Audnedal muncipality has approximately 1.700 inhabitants and covers a area of 251,0 km2. This is a beautiful inland district in the middle of Vest-Agder. In the middle of the beautiful natural surroundings of this valley are three lakes, the source of the famous salmon river the Audna. The river is once again a good place to fish salmon and sea trout after the completion of Norway´s largest chalking project. A fishing site for the disabled has been constructed near Gislefoss in the south of the district. In these narrow rapids you can also see the salmon jumping. The lakes have good stocks of trout and eel.
