Description

Månafossen is Rogaland's biggest waterfall and Norway's ninth tallest free fall waterfall. From the parking area you proceed on foot along the southeast bank of the river. The path up to Månafossen is steep and rugged in places. The steepest spots have steps and chains that you can hold on to as you climb. From the path you have a fine view over Månafossen, which has a free fall of 92 metres. The waterfall is protected and is one of Rogaland's biggest tourist attractions.

You can continue your trip into Måndal and visit Mån farm. This was the first farm that was cleared in Fidjadalen valley - probably already in the early Middle Ages. On the lush grassy slopes around the main building there are numerous remnants of the mountain farm that was in use until 1915. Today the restored farmhouse is the only remaining original building. A new building sleeps 34 persons. In the basement you'll find an exhibition featuring the mountain farm's history, the conservation area Frafjordheiene and the work of the Jæren Recreational Council. The basement also serves as a heated shelter, where you're welcome to warm up while you eat your lunch when visiting Mån farm.

From Stavanger: Drive E39 through Ålgård, continue on Rv45 Byrkjedal. Sign by exit to Månafossen. Parking options
