Fishing at Haugastøl
Haugastøl can offer varied and exciting fishing along Hallingskarvet mountain and is a good starting point for day trips or overnight stays in tents. Here you can enjoy fish of high quality. The road here is quite straight forward. You can jump on the train from Geilo, Oslo or Bergen or take the car. If you arrive by train, your trip starts at the Haugastøl station. If you drive, you park at the station or turn off on the Fjellvegen road, which will take you a few meters higher in elevation. You will find parking by the Tjørnagravtjørni lake; but get there early, as there are a limited number of parking spots.
The route is well-marked from the station and further up. You will meet a fork in the road at the Tjørnagravtjørni lake/parking lot, which is also the first lake where one can fish. The Geilo Hunting and Fishing Association also has a small rental cabin here. Both roads further on take you to fishable areas, but with a slightly longer hike to the first water if you choose to keep left.
There are plenty of fishing waters to choose from, from smaller to larger lakes and good opportunities for great catches. All the waters are regularly cultivated by Geilo hunt & fishing association, this ensures good quality and a viable stock from which you can harvest well. The area takes you into beautiful natural areas with a varied high mountain fauna and species diversity. In summer, the sun lingers for a long time before it sneaks behind Hallingskarvet mountains.
