Jarenvatnet and Vigga
Jarenvatnet is well known for both pike fishing and ice fishing for whitefish and perch.
Fishing from land can be a bit tricky, but we can recommend two good spots.
- The east side of Jarenstranda. (Turn at the station and keep left.)
- The fishing jetty about half way down the western shore. (There is a car park and information board.)

Make a turn at the petrol station in Toso or at Olimb and follow the road to Mylla. This is a toll road. If you take the turn at Toso you will experience some of Svenådalen’s nature reserve. You then reach Tverrsjøstallen.
From Tverrsjøen and south through Nordmarka towards Katnosa the lakes lie next to each other like pearls on a string. This is a popular canoeing route. The fish species consist mostly of trout, perch and char. On the west side of the lakes is Pershusfjell with its unique and impressive landscape. The area is protected.
Towards the east is the Spålen Katnosa nature reserve, where the boundary is marked in green. There is a forest path with information boards from Tverrsjøstallen to Svarttjernshøgda, which is Nordmarka’s highest point. At the top, there is a timber viewing tower.
If you travel on to Jevnaker Vestås, you will find many good lakes with trout and perch. The landscape is varied with marshes and pine forest.
