Eastern Norway Vestfold og Telemark NISSEDAL

Potholes

Overview

 Since the ice-age, rocks and gravel have been swirling around on the riverbanks and formed big potholes.

The potholes (jettegrytene) in Nissedal are an incredibly beautiful natural phenomenon, you will find in the far south of the municipality, by the small village Eikhom, a mile from  the "Telemarksvegen".

The potholes are round or long depressions in solid rock and have been made of meltwater during the ice age. The river Fyresåna has for ages spun around with stones and gravel in the river bed, which has since been regulated for electricity production. Before the power developers went to work, the giant pots were a well-kept secret underwater. Only when a large part of the water masses were laid in pipes did the round depressions in the river bed become visible.

Popular swimming area
Here you experience nature's own summer country. The giant pots have been a popular bathing spot for the villagers for many years and they are almost like hot springs to count. The area is 300 meters, with hot pots and lovely slides. You will find them located in a narrow valley with rocks on both sides, where the sun gets a really good grip.

The potholes were for a long time a well-kept secret for most people. A full-page report in Aftenposten about the beautiful rock formations, made this change quite drastically. In addition, they were named bathing resort of the year in 1999 by NRK Telemark, Vestfold and Buskerud.

Take good care of this natural gem
The area is very vulnerable. Do not make fires on the rocks, as you may risk the rock cracking. Think environmentally friendly and do not throw rubbish.

Access and parking
A new car park has been created (for a fee of NOK 200, - tip) right after Dynjanfoss power station. The road to the potholes is currently closed with a barrier for an uncertain time.

You can cycle into the potholes, but it can be a bit "tricky" to get the bike over the barrier. If you choose to walk, you can take the shortcut under the timber gutter (it is forbidden to go up in the timber gutter), or walk around the road. The path under the timber gutter is not well marked. It runs partly in rough and demanding terrain, and is not suitable for children under compulsory school age, people with prams, etc. Wear solid footwear, e.g. mountain shoes, solid sneakers and the like.

From Dynjanfoss power station and into the giant pots there are:
- about. 7 km by bike
- about. 2 km on foot under the timber gutter (turn right right after the bridge at Dynjanfoss power station).
