Haldammen

Old damsystem buildt for floating of timber.

Haldammen is an old listed damsystem for timber floating. There has been activity here since the first water wheel and a mill was built in the 1600s. In 1804 the first dam was completed and the floating was continued until 1981.

Today you can see some old huts and the dam itself. Some of the huts is open to the public to use for accommodation and bonfires. Space for 2 campers for overnight stay in the free parking lot. You have to pay a small access-fee to use the gravel roads for access into this site.

Every year, in early June, “Haldamsdagene” is arranged. While these are going on, old traditions of craftsmanship is shown and visitors can try out different old craftmanships. During these days timber floating is also demonstrated, and the timberslip over the Haldamstupet takes place when the water in the dam is released.
