Lemonsjø Lake- The North’s clearest lake

The name of the lodge comes from the nearby lake called Lemonsjø ( means “Lemon lake”), which is located on the hill south of Vågåvatnet, by riksveg 51. Lemonsjø is a very unique lake ; there are no obvious sources of inflows to the lake, only outflows . So why is the water level still stable? The reason behind this is that there are underground water sources at the bottom of the lake, providing a stable inflow of water. This phenomenon has several interesting consequences; first, during winter, even though the lake is covered in ice, there are a couple of open patches where the underground sources enter the lake, creating movement;secondly, the clean inflow sources is the reason why the lake is so clear and clean. There is no algae growth so yo can see the bottom of the lake 20 metres deep.

The name Lemon lake has many explanations, some more realistic than others. One explanation is that it comes from the name of the Norway lemming (lemen), and others say that in the 17th century a Scot lived and cultivated lemons in the area! The more probable explanation is that the name is linked to a tool that was used for fishing in that area. Over the years the name has changed, but the original name Hhlemhundr is the same as the tool used (hlemr).
