Description

Sightseeing boats and private yachts often stop on the Lysefjord to savour the view of Hengjanefossen fall – unless, of course, their captain chooses to sail right up to the falls, perhaps filling a bucket so that passengers may taste the pure mountain water. The strength of the waterfall varies naturally with the rainfall and meltwater. The 400 m waterfall can also be experienced on a mountain walk along the northern shore of the Lysefjord.
