The Norwegian National Road 13 exits the Tunsberg Tunnel just northwest of the lake and then runs along the northern and eastern shores of the lake before entering the Vallavik Tunnel just off the southeastern tip of the lake. The planned Joberg Tunnel is scheduled to be built along the northern part of this lake. The old Hardanger Line railway used to run along the west side of the lake. Granvin Church lies along the eastern shore of the lake.[1]
