Laksforsen is situated in Grane by highway E6, with a breathtaking panoramic view of a beautiful waterfall.

Through the panoramic windows of the restaurant, you enjoy a spectacular view of the raging waters and the spray from the 17-metre-high waterfall. You can feel the thunder of the falls! And diners can often see the salmon’s impressive leaps as it struggles to navigate upstream.

The Forsmo family has operated the restaurant for decades. Throughout the years, several generations have worked side by side, taking great pride in inherited recipes and region’s food traditions. The menu always features salmon, but also meat dishes that are still made according to the great-grandmother’s secret recipes.

The large gift shop has an excellent selection of souvenirs in all price ranges.
