Birdwatching at Leksdalsvatnet
Leksdalsvatnet is the most important freshwater lake for birdwatching in Mid-Norway. The lake is about 12 kilometres long and located on the border between Steinkjer and Verdal municipality. The area has several richly vegetated bays, shallow areas, and river deltas, providing favourable conditions for a rich birdlife. Because of this, the area has one nature reserve and two bird reserves.
Generally speaking, Leksdalsvatnet is a popular hiking area. Fishing, cycling, running, and swimming are well-known activities in and around the lake. Therefore, your birding visit to this area should preferably be when other activities are at a lower level.
