Gurosetfossen

(or Drivandefossen or Hundkastet/Hundkast?)

Gurosetfossen is an unofficially named waterfall upstream of Drivandefossen. Gurosetfossen is located in the Morkridsdalen, north of Skjolden in the region Sogn og Fjordane, Norway.

In Skjolden follow the signs for Morkrid/Bollstad. Follow the road along the river for 6 kilometer. You already can see Drivandefossen at the left side, behind the river. Cross the bridge and follow the road for a few hundred meter until there is a small road to the left and a wooden sign Asetevatnet. Soon the road changes and becomes a dust road. After a few hundred meter you can go left again at a sign Asetevatnet. Now you have reached the parking.

To my surprise there where a lot of cars at the parking. Probably the hike to Asetevatnet is a popular destination. During my hike to Drivandefossen I saw nobody.

DrivandefossenAt the trailhead there is a big information board the protected area you are in, Morkridsdalen, Breheimen national park. Still no information about the walk to Drivandefossen. No worry, this is the right track. Behind the information board you see a path going up.

The path is steep in the beginning and the path is well maintained. The walk is pleasant and you walk over the mountain through a forrest. The last part of the walk gets steep again but I know I have almost reached Drivandefossen. I can hear water falling and the closer I get I also a curtain of mist. a good sign, this means there is a lot of water in Drivandefossen.

DrivandefossenAfter 17 minutes I have a good view on Drivandefossen from the forrest. The closer I get the more enthusiastic I am. It is good day for visiting this gorgeous waterfall. Unfortunately this time no rainbow. It is late in the afternoon and for a rainbow you have to visit Drivandefossen (probably) at the end of the morning.

When walking further upstream you will see another waterfall on the left side, the Gurosetfossen. Gurosetfossen is a long stretched waterfall in the river Gurosetelvi. The river is fed by a tiny glacier (if it still exists) and the lake Ofsarvatnet at an altitude of 1.003 meter.

The trail goes further up to Asetvatnet at an altitude of 838 meter, an elevation of appr. 700 meter!

FeigefossenThere are a lot of great waterfalls in the Lustrafjorden area. Drivandefossen, also in the Morkridsdalen just before Gurosetfossen, is one of my favorite waterfall. Big chance that you see a rainbow in front of the waterfall. Feigefossen with a height of 275 meter is probably the most famous one and is located 16 kilometer south of Skjolden at the east side of the Lustrafjorden.
Another great waterfall is Brekkefossen that already can be seen from camping Nymoen in Skjolden on the other side of the Eidsvatnet.
