Birdwatching at Hoplavassdraget
Hoplavassdraget consists mainly of three large waters—Hammervatnet, Hoklingen, and Movatnet—and two smaller waters—Nesvatnet and Lynvatnet.
Hammervatnet is nearly 6 kilometres long and surrounded by swamp forest and cultivated land. The birdlife in this area is one of the richest among freshwaters in Mid-Norway, and it is very easy to access from the main road E6. If you are visiting the area, other waters are also worth a visit. There, you will find similar species as you would find around Hammervatnet. Lynvatnet, for example, is an important staging area for geese.
