The Kjærra Waterfalls Park 

 Situated in one of the most spectacular sceneries of Lågendalen you find the Kjærra Waterfalls Park. The Park, covering both sides of the river Lågen, derives its name from the famous Kjærra Waterfalls. Here, the river splits into two separate courses: The Eastern Falls and The Western Falls. The waterfall park is famous for its salmon and the historical fishing methods used are well documented

In the waterpark you have the opportunity to go for a nice hike, admire the birdsongs, go fishing or just find peace in the beauty of Kjærra waterfalls park. The park offers benches to sit and eat your lunch, as well as bonfires around the area.

The industry of fishing at Kjærra waterfalls park can be documented all the way back to the 1300 and lasted towards the end of 1958. After a while the plant was restored and opened for tourism in 1992. This brought tourist from all over the country to experience the Kjærra waterfalls, salmon fishing and summer concerts. Further its popular to visit Kjærra with kayaks.

The salmon trap is opened every Thursday during the season. It’s usually a lot of fish and if your lucky you get to buy a wild salmon. The fishing season for salmon is 10.06 – 26.08.

The Kjærra-bridge extend over Lågen with its 132 meters. The bridge is an architectural masterpiece surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the forest, waterfalls and leaping salmon. This project started in the fall of 2000 and was opened by county governor Mona Røkke July 5th, 2001.

The exhibitions around the park makes it interesting and creates a unique experience when walking around. In the park you will find 5 different spots that displays 5 photographs of Kjærra waterfalls park during winter time. The placement of the pictures is aligned so that the photographs shows the same landscape as behind the photographs. The photographer is Kjell Harangen. When walking around the park you’ll also find sculptures within the nature, by the artist Trond Fredriksen.  The Anagamovnen is both an art piece and a ceramic oven. The oven is inspired originally from Japan and it can hold up to 500 figures. This project is a cooperation between Stiftelsen Kjærra Fossepark, sculptor Trond Frederiksen, ceramist Ole Krongaard and the college of Telemark. 

Toilets and water is available on site for the visitors. If your looking for more excitement, speed and climbing its perfect to combine it with Høyt og Lavt Climbingpark.
