Kvasfossen

(Kvåsfossen)

Kvåsfossen is a nice waterfall near Kvås, between Lyngdal and Snartemo, in the region Vest-Agder, Norway.

Driving north from Lyngdal on road Rv43. After the white church in Kvås the road bends to the left, at the left side of the road you will see a picnic tabel with a view on the river Lyngdalselva from 30 meter above. There is a sign for a viewpoint and a sign to Fidjestol.

Park the car here and walk towards the bridge over the Lyngdalselva. Here you will have a nice view on Kvåsfossen from above. The river Lyngdalselva is trying to squeeze itself through a narrow gorge.

Walking downstream you will have a better look on Kvåsfossen and you will also see the Kvås laksesenter, a small but very pretty museum.

June 2004 me and my brother went to Norway for the first time. To our surprise we spotted Kvåsfossen in the beginning of our journey, chasing waterfalls. A very nice beginning of a beautiful stay

Kvåsfossen is appr. 10 meters high, plunges down in two steps. Best time to visit Kvåsfossen is early summer when there is a lot of melted snow in the rivers.

There aren’t many waterfalls nearby but going further north you will find the huge Månafossen near Breidland in the province Rogaland.
