Bordalsgjelet Gorge

  • +47 406 17 700
  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

Bordalsgjelet is a truly spectacular gorge. The purpose-built path there provides the opportunity to see the potholes and the gorge at close range.

From the town centre you follow the gravel path alongside Vangsvatnet lake towards Prestegardsmoen. Cross the bridge over the river Vosso at the end of Prestegardsmoen. Turn right after the bridge and follow Russarvegen road along the river. The road is marked all the way to Bordalsgjelet.

Bordalsgjelet is a spectacular natural attraction within walking distance from the town centre. The deep and imposing Bordalsgjelet has been adapted for the visiting public with an information board, a viewpoint and benches for resting tired legs. When the ground isn’t hidden by snow it is possible to follow a purposely-built path that guides you to the gorge. Here you can experience an impressive view of the potholes that have been formed by the ice and river over a period of many thousands of years. Always remember to keep to the marked trails for your own safety!
