Description

Park you car underneath the farm Feigum, by the fjord-side of the road. The trail starts by the road approximately 300 meters towards Ornes from the parking. Follow the marked trail to a viewpoint below the waterfall. The trail is somewhat rocky near the end, but is well marked and easy to walk. The walk takes about 45 min. from the road to the viewpoint at an elevation of 150 meters.

The Feigefossen Waterfall has a drop of 218 meters. It is the second highest unregulated waterfall in Norway, after Vettisfossen in Årdal (275 meters). The Feigum Watercourse is indefinitely protected against regulation.

Have a nice walk!
