If you bring your fishing rod with you on a trip, there are great opportunities to catch fish in many mountain lakes and in the rivers in many of the valleys. With the mountain road between Aurland and Lærdal as a starting point, there is great hiking terrain to the fishing lakes in Storebotnen. Whether starting from Fyre or from Mjølfjell, there are many nice fishing lakes on the trip to Grindaflet cabin. Aurland and Lærdal Mountain Authorities sell fishing licenses and provide valuable information about fishing lakes and fishing regulations.
Visitors may purchase hunting licenses for both moose and red deer in the World Heritage Site, and wild reindeer hunting is permitted in certain areas. Small game hunting in the mountains is a great activity from August to February.

Clean up after yourself and do not leave any trash behind, including disposable barbecues and wet wipes.
Lighting campfires in forests and uncultivated land is prohibited from 15 April to 15 September, except along places such as watercourses where the risk of wildfires is minimal. Use established fire pits and avoid building campfires directly on bedrock in case the rock cracks. Extinguish the fire properly and clean up before you leave.
