Appreciating the view from Lovatnet, and remembering the tragic history of the lake 🌷
In 1905 a big piece of rock came loose from one of mountains and made a 500 meter drop into the water, creating a 40 meter tidal wave that hit Bødal and Nesdal. One side of the wave whiped Bødal off the map and the other side hit Nesdal. 61 people died, more than 50 houses were destroyed and 80 boathouses disappeared in the wave.
31 years later, in 1936, nature took its toll again. A piece of rock almost twice the size of the Eiffel tower broke loose and ended up in the lake, creating a tsunami that was so large even previous taken measures were useless. All farms were destroyed and another 74 died that day.
Along the road between Bødal and Kjenndal you will find a copper plate with the names of all the people who have disappeared during the disasters. There is also a little flowerbed there to memoralize all the inhabitants who died during the tragic events.

In Norway you can camp nearly anywhere you want. The right to roam ("allemannsretten") lets you put up a tent, or sleep under the stars anywhere in the countryside, forests and mountains, as long as you keep at least 150 meters away from the nearest inhabited house or cabin 🏕 The rules are simple: be considerate and thoughtful. Don't damage nature and other surroundings, and leave the landscape as you would want to find it!
