Est. reading time:

This is a video from Haldenvassdraget, or the Halden watercourse. It lies along the border with Sweden and consists of a number of lakes, rivers and canals.

Haldenvassdraget was developed in the middle of the 19th century to transport timber to the factory facilities in Halden, on the coast. The total length is about 150 km. This video from Haldenvassdraget shows a couple of locks in the Soot Canal, and the three remaining and fully operational locks along the Halden Canal (Ørje, Strømsfoss and Brekke). It also includes scenes from the summer opening of the locks in Ørje in 2019.
