Kjosfossen

Kjosfossen is a big and powerful waterfall between Flåm and Myrdal in the region Sogn og Fjordane, Norway.

The only way to visit this enormous waterfall is by train (Flåmbanen). During the main season a show is performed where a girl is dressed as Huldra (a seductive forest creature). Aside from the fact that a nice show is staged, Kjosfossen is absolute a top 10 waterfall in Norway. With its 93-225 m height and a huge volume, you take all the fuss in the bargain, and you can enjoy the force of the water.

The Flåmbanen is a popular tourist attraction where a train brings you from Flåm to Myrdal. The height difference is 865 meters which has to be done in 20 kilometers, the second steepest railway in the world. On the way you can enjoy several waterfalls, named and unnamed. Be sure to make a reservation in the high season. It can be very crowded.

The first waterfall you pass is the Brekkefossen, on the right. The next, a little bit further (also on the right) is the Rjoandefossen, the one with the nicest colors in the most beautiful landscape. Near station Berekvam you will see several waterfalls on the left, the biggest (unofficial named) one is Tunnshello. Then you will pass by the Kardalsfossen, but this is better visible when walking down from Myrdal.

The first short stop is the one at Kjosfossen. From here you will see several streams and you will have a beautiful view on the Myrdalsfossen which plunges down over 225 meters. When walking down from Myrdal you will decent on a trail besides the waterfall. In Berekvam we took the train back to Flåm.
