Experiences and activities

The area around Hjellup Fjordbo offers experiences and activities of many different kinds.

Nature experiences

The lighting conditions at the fjord changes with the seasons and time of day. They are an experience in themselves for recreation, creativity and photography.

The area around Hjellup Fjordbo is rich in plant and wildlife. In addition to fish and many different sea birds, you may also be lucky enough to see whales such as porpoises or killer whales in the fjord. On land, you can meet deer and moose, and many different birds such as eagles and owls.

Go fishing

For those who want to try their luck at fishing, there are several places in the area where it is possible to fish from shore, or you can hire a boat in the marina here in Leksvik to get out on the fjord.

Kayak rental

There are many nice places along the lake at Hjellup Fjordbo that are suitable for swimming, barbecues and evening cuddles. Rent a kayak or SUP here with us for a different nature experience. 


We have a fantastic playground for the little ones, with a trampoline, swing, zipline, climbing frame and even a little more. Here, the children can make their days go by with lots of laughter and joy. 

Fjord bathing and sauna

A refreshing fjord bath in one of the country's cleanest fjords is not to be despised, and our beach is ideal for both sunbathing and swimming. It's ice-free all year round, and if you're one of those people who also like to swim when the air temperature drops to 0 degrees or below, there are of course plenty of opportunities to do so.

It is also possible to rent our sauna down by the sea. It can accommodate up to 7-8 people and has a great view of the fjord. Combining a refreshing fjord bath with a sauna is both social and healthy for body and soul. Read more about our sauna rental conditions here.


If you're the kind of person who likes to swim in warm water and finds the temperature in the fjord too low, we also have a jacuzzi that can be rented. It is heated all year round and maintains 40 degrees in winter. Our jacuzzi is located at the very bottom of the fjord. Here you have a view of the fjord, while the warm water envelops your body, allowing you to relax and enjoy. It's really worth treating yourself to such an experience!

Cycling tours

Leksvik and the surrounding area is a great place to experience by bike. Here with us, you can get lots of good route tips along the way.
