Ogge is a lake in the municipalities of Birkenes and Iveland in Aust-Agder county, Norway. It is located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Kristiansand and has about 360 islands and reefs. The overall length of the lake is approximately 16 kilometres (9.9 mi). The Sørland Line runs along the west side of the lake.[1]


Ogge is a wonderful place for canoeing and kayaking. It has a number of camping sites with toilet and grill on many of the small islands. Very little of the shoreline is private property. On canoe trips, you can see moose (Alces alces), beaver, and varied birdlife. Canoes can be rented locally.[2][3]
