The suspension bridge across Hell

  • Storvegen 211, Tokke
  • +47 35075656
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Round trip from Dalen where you cross the river Tokkeåi via the suspension bridge over Helveteshylen (Hell)

Description of the walk 

Medium challenging walk. Information boards along the trail conveys historical sites with information about the timber floating in the river, the giant brown trout and the old legislative farm Åsland. 

The walk starts by Tokke kulturhus. After 2 km you will reach the suspension bridge across Hell and Hell´s Waterfall. The waterfall, originally named The Nederbø Waterfall, posed a big challenge to the log drivers in the nineteenth century, and was therefore given the nickname Hell’s Waterfall. A bridge was later built across what became known as Hell.

From the bridge you can watch the giant trout as it migrates upstream in the autumn.

After the bridge, continue along the path through cultural landscapes, then woodland, before ascending the steep hillside. As you approach Dalen you will arrive at a scenic vantage point, equipped with a bench for the weary rambler. After descending from the vantage point, continue to the ancient farm Åsland.  The farm served as a thingstead, a legislative assembly, from around 1300 onwards. Here you can stop to enjoy the views of Lake Bandak and the Telemark Canal before returning to the starting point by Tokke kulturhus.
