Description

Melsvannet lake is located between Bryne and Ålgård, along Fv 506.

Ideal swimming spot. The area is nicely landscaped, has a parking area with toilet, a fishing quay and a tour road around the lake well-suited for wheelchair users. From the summit of Melsnuten, north of the lake, you have an amazing panorama of Jæren. In "normal" winters Melsvannet lake freezes over - great for ice skating, with cross-country skiing in the surrounding hills.

The parking area by Melsvannet is a good starting point for walks to Lyngaland, a farm dating back to the age of migrations, or you can wander over to Sælandskogen woods.
