Fjord Norway Vestland ULLENSVANG

Four beautiful waterfalls, Husedalen valley

  • +47 48070777
  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

The scenery and waterfalls in Husedalen simply take your breath away. Four stunning waterfalls are close to each other along the hiking trail from Kinsarvik up to the Hardangervidda mountain plateau. A hike from the car park to the uppermost fall and back takes 5-6 hours. The area is easily accessible and a good alternative for hikes of any length. Hardanger Fossasti (footpath) is a light walk starting in Kinsarvik. Follow the path along the river and read the information boards along the way. More information and map.

Starting point 
Follow the local road signposted Husedalen from route 13 in the centre of Kinsarvik.
Shuttlebus Hardanger offers, on request, transportation and pick-up service to/from the starting and ending point of the hiking trail. Booking information, you can find here.

About the trail 
This trail has been known for decades as one of the most beautiful hikes in Norway. Some parts are demanding and steep, slippery when wet. The hike takes you into the Hardangervidda National Park, the largest in Norway. After parking, hike along the gravel road to the first waterfall Tveitafossen.
From here there are two options:
1) Follow a partly quite steep trail marked with red Ts, from behind the power station. May be slippery.
2) Follow a steep gravel road that ends before the third waterfall. Continue to the third and fourth waterfall on the T-marked trail. The gravel road is also a nice return path. You may also start hiking in the centre of Kinsarvik, adding an extra 2 km each way.

Parking: Near the go-kart circuit and the shooting range, before crossing the river Vivippo. Turn back if you see the helicopter base on the right side. Parking fee: free
Length: 5 km (one way), or less if turning back earlier.
Total ascent: 700 meters, or less if turning back earlier.
Total walking time: 3 - 6 hours (2 waterfalls or 4 waterfalls)
Season (average year): May – October
