Fresh water fishing and traditional salmon fishing
People of all ages can take a trip to the Tengs river and be fascinated by the salmon’s journey through the river and fish ladder to its permanent spawning ground. This is an experience that is highly recommended. In addition, we have salmon fishing along the river in Bjerkreim. The river has earned a reputation at home and abroad as one of Norway’s very best.
