Sagelva Hydropower centre is situated in Lesja kommune (Gudbrandsdalen), on the border of Rauma municipality in Romsdalen. Exit from E 136, 3 km west for Bjorli. Follow the road to Brøste for 1.5 km.

 The centre has a history dating back to the 1700s. Then it was a saw mill and a flourmill, but a clothes press was added around 1845. Now the old sawmill has been restored, and has become a water energy centre. The restoration started in 1999, and more than 30 000 working hours are put into the project.

Sagelva tells the story of how the power from the water has been exploited in more than 300 years, and shows three different water wheels. The power from the flowing water and the different methods to exploit it impresses visitors and is a unique experience.
