Brurasloret (Flatmark)

(Brurasløret)

Brurasloret (Brurasløret) is one of the many waterfalls in the Romsdalen (Rauma) near Flatmark, 27 km south of Åndalsnes in the region More og Romsdal.

Gravdefossen, Brudesloret and BrurasloretBrurasloret is the fourth big waterfall at the left side of the road, just after Flatmark. You will see two waterfalls, Brurasloret and Gravdefossen. The first (smaller one) is the lower part of Brurasloret. Driving further you cross a small waterstream where you also can see the middle part of Brurasloret. The upper part is actually the waterfall that officially is called Brurasloret but is not visible from the roadside.

Often the middle part of Brurasloret is covered with clouds, also when I was in the Romsdalen July 2017. The first time, years ago in May, I was more lucky and I could see the middle part (see picture).

Height is more difficult to determine. Between the three drops of Brurasloret a big part is sliding down. The total descent of the waterfall is appr. 700 meter. Brurasløret is being fed by water from the river Styggefonngrova which tumbles down from the Fossafjelet (1.783 m), a plateau with lakes and small glaciers.

Brurasloret on map, StyggefonaIt is very confusing that there are two waterfalls, next to each other, with almost the same name (Brurasloret and Brudesloret) in a river with the same name, Styggefonngrova. But it are really two different waterfalls. Brudesloret (the bigger waterfall more south) is called Gravdefossen.

Fortunately there are many other big waterfalls in the Romsdalen (Rauma) when driving from Andalsnes to Dombas (road E136)
Olmaafossen (1th waterfall on the right, one of the highest waterfall in the world)
Mongefossen (2nd waterfall at the left side, but is regulated and probably not visible)
Rangaafossen (3th waterfall at the left side, but is regulated and probably not visible)
Brurasløret,(4th waterfall at the left side, nice to see together with Gravdefossen)
Gravdefossen (5th waterfall at the left side and the most impressive waterfall)
Døntefossen
 (6th waterfall at the right side, beautiful with river in foreground)
Skokagrovafossen (7th waterfall at the left side, nice if you are standing near the waterfall)
Vermafossen.(8th waterfall at the right side, much bigger then it looks like)
Kylingbruafossen (9th waterfall(s) at the right side, close to Kyling bridge, unnamed but beautiful)
Slettafossen (10th waterfall at the right side, extremely powerful waterfall in the river Rauma)
Then there are still dozens of low volume waterfall not considered as a waterfall.

MardalsfossenNot far from Romsdalen (Rauma) you can also drive into the Eikesdalen with the enormous Mardalsfossen. A tourist attraction, but the waterfalls are very impressive to see and the walk to the base of Mardalsfossen is very pleasant. Anyway Eikesdalen is a valley with many big waterfalls and is a visit worthwhile. There is a nice campingsite in Eikesdal, a perfect base to explore the area.
