 Lake Follsjø is a popular area among Notoddens residents, and for new visitors it is a rare treat. Lake Follsjø is a good spot for swimming from late May until early September, though the water is most comfortable between July and August. Recreational fishing at Lake Follsjø is popular throughout the year, and if you are lucky, you might be able to catch a 5kg trout. The area is a good place to start if you wish to explore the surrounding forests, hillsides and mountains. Enjoy!

Access: From Notodden city centre, follow E134 direction Kongsberg, turn left and follow signs to Bolkesjø, continue 15km along FV602, park your car at the side of the road, be considerate of traffic and others when you park.
