Eastern Norway Viken NES

Svanfoss river lock

  • Svanefoss, Nes
  •  /  km From You

Svanfoss lock located by Svanfossen.

The lock provides access between Mjøsa and Vormas lower parts as well as Glomma between Rånåsfoss and Funnefoss and are among the few in the whole region. The lock was build during early 1900 and was opened in 1906 - and closed from 1973 to 1993, when a restored lock was reopened after a collaboration between NVE, Eidsvoll municipality, Nes municipality and Glommens and Laagens Brukseierforening.

There are opportunities for lock-in by contacting the lock guard at least an hour before the planned lock-in either from Vorma or Mjøsa - for more information see Nes municipality's pages.

The boat Elvekongen has boat trips up Vorma with lock in - for more information and ordering tickets see
