Provider: Foam Travel

Månafossen, or the "Moon Waterfall," is Norway's 9th largest waterfall (92 meters) and the largest in the Rogaland County. The trail to the falls is a quick, scenic 0.5 km hike that takes around 20 minutes each way. The start of the trail is a bit steep, but there are stairs and chain to hold on. 

Upon arrival one has an overview of the imposing, magical falls with excellent opportunities for photos. From Månafossen is it possible to continue the hike to the  aboned mountain farm Mån (Friluftsgården Mån) in care of Jæren Friluftsråd. The basement is open to get indoor and there is toilets. This is the beginning of the Stavanger Tracking Association' s trails in Frafjordheiene and the trail continues through Fidjadalen to Blåfjellenden. 

Månafossen is a great excursion to combine with a SUP paddle or kayak trip in Frafjord, as they are in very close proximity of one another. Or perhaps a more relaxing activity such as Frafjord Spa or Byrkjedalstunet candle factory and traditional Norwegian cuisine and gifts.
