The history of Lygnstøyls lake

Lygnstøyls lake was created in 1908 when the river Lygna was dammed by a landslide. It flooded over the road and several buildings. Today it is a lake with a clear view and hence is nice for diving and paddling. The easiest way to explore this underwater world is through water binoculars and stable kayaks. Then you can keep yourself dry and warm while you break the surface down to the underwater world. Your local guide will tell you more about the special history of Lygnstøyls lake and its landscape.
