Overview
Details

The Dorgefoss waterfall is an impressive gorge and waterfall located between Omlid and Handeland in Sirdal

Dorgefoss is a popular picnic area in the summer, with its trails, information boards and picnic tables located right next to the impressive Dorgefoss waterfall.

Next to the picnic tables there is a 3000 kg rock named "Håvardsteinen" (Håvard rock), it is said that Håvard Valevatn moved this heavy rock all by himself, when they built the first road along the gorge here.

An old tale from Sirdal describes how prisoners with a death sentence got a last chance to save themselves by jumping over the Dorgefoss waterfall. If they made it they were free, if not the fall down the waterfall would fulfill the death sentence.
