About

The five ponds, Dammane in Brevik, are Brevik's old source of drinking water and were completed in 1884. Here there are inviting walking areas with fine paths situated in a beautiful, varied and hilly terrain. The dams and the surrounding area have the status of a landscape conservation area.

Path from Dammane to the Pulpit and Ole Høiland's Cave
There is a path from Dammane to the Pulpit and Ole Høiland's Cave. But be aware, because it's precipitous below the main hang and it's a long way down to the lake. From here you have a nice view of most of the Frierfjord and the petrochemical plants on the Bamble side of the fjord. NB! Ole Høiland's cave is difficult to access.

Cycling is allowed here, but it is recommended that you use the main paths. This is due to considerations for vulnerable nature that can be affected by wear and tear from cycling.

Information boards
You will find several boards with information signs and maps of the landscape conservation area and the nature reserve. Parts of the area are adapted for the disabled, but there is some climbing from the car park upwards.

How to get to Dammane
To get to Dammane in Brevik, exit at Norcem (through the underpass) and follow the road south to the car park.
You can also drive into Trosvikbukta by the old railway station and on to Dammane.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brevik’s dams are one of the best and most popular walking areas in the Porsgrunn district. The five dams are Brevik’s former source of drinking water and were completed in 1884. They offer an attractive walking area with excellent paths in beautiful, varied and rolling terrain. The dams and the surrounding countryside are a designated landscape protection area.

There are several boards providing information and maps of the landscape protection area and the nature reserve. Parts of the area are fully accessible, but there is an uphill section from the car park.

There is a path from Dammane and on to Prekestolen (the Pulpit Rock) and Ole Høilands Hule (Ole Høiland’s Cave). Take care, as it’s a very steep descent and a long way down to the lake!

From here, you can see most of the Frierfjord and the petrochemical plants on the Bamble side of the fjord. Note that Ole Høiland’s Cave is difficult to access.

To get to Dammane, turn off at Norcem (through the underpass) and follow the road southwards to the car park. You can also drive into Trosvikbukta by the old railway station and on to Dammane.
