Description

Lysedalen is as cut out of a fairytale! Enjoy another day in Lysebotn discovering the many pearls of the valley.

The path to Kaldahålå (The Cold Cave) starts from the road at the innermost farms in Lyse. After about 10-15 minutes, you get to the Kaldahålå. Further on you’ll come across the Kongesteinen (King Stone). According to legend, this stone was the resting place for a viking king on his way east.

Close by the Kongesteinen there is a large gorge where you can see the huge pothole called Tangakjelen.
