Waterfall hike

Langfoss is among the tallest waterfalls in Europe, veiling a total of 600 meter as it slides violently into the calm waters of the Åkrafjord. Langfoss is the 5th largest waterfall in Norway, and has several times been voted as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.

The mountains in this area is much less crowded compared to the area around Trolltunga, and these mountains are mainly visited by the locals. We want to introduce you this beautiful part of Norway, and show you why we love these mountains. We camp along the river where we serve some local specialties. And if you like fishing, bring a rod. Because you’ll find the mountain trout biting both in the river close to our camp, and in the lake further up.

 
 

About

We offer overnight hikes to this spectacular waterfall, where you will get to experience a authentic Norwegian adventure. This is a total 13 km hike, where we start 100 meters above sea level. The highest point is at a viewpoint 847 meters above sea level. Here you will experience a magnificent view over the fjord, glacier and the waterfall!

We will meet up at Rullestad camping 11:00 in the morning. From here we will follow a steep trail into the mountain. We will keep a low pace, and have a lot of short brakes on our way up. If the weather allows it, we will have "lunch with a view" when we reach the viewpoint. For lunch we will serve our delicious homemade sandwich with cheese and ham.

After lunch, we will continue further into the mountain, until we reach a large lake. The outflow of this lake is the source of Langfoss. And if you like fishing, this is a perfect place for catching mountain trout.
