History
It was the copper mines in Åmdal Verk that was the basis for building the pier in Bandaksli. The pier was built around 1860, and was used for shipping copper ore down the waterway. At the pier there was a storehouse, a pier, a shop and a warehouse. For transporting the ore, there was a cableway from the top of the hill and 350 meters down to the warehouse for the ore, located about 100 m west of the pier.  As the pier was not deep enough for larger boats, a new pier was built at Bandaksli in 1908/09. The pier is built to function also during flood, with different heights so that it can function at different water levels.

From the pier it is 15 km up to Åmdals Verk Mines. Here you can experience great exhibitions and join a mining walk.
