Laegdafossen

(Lægdafossen, Sagfossen)

Lægdafossen (also named as the Sagfosssen) is a astonishing beautiful waterfall in the river Sagelvi located in the Næroyfjord. With a total height of 575 meters, a significant water flow (in summer) and a good view on the 4 cascades, this waterfall is one of my favorite waterfall in the region of Sogn og Fjordane. Lægdafossen is fed by several small lakes in the Steindalen, one of them is the Lægdavatnet on an altitude of 772 meters.

Lægdafossen can only be reached/viewed by boat when going through the Næroyfjord. From Aurland-Flam there is ferry going through the Næroyfjord to Undredal and Gudvangen. It takes two hours with the ferry to get from Flam to Gudvangen. Other possibility is to rent a canoe.

The Næroyfjord is a very narrow fjord and is a side arm of one of the deepest fjords in the world, the Sognefjord. Going through the Næroyfjord you can view several unnamed and named waterfalls like the Odnesfossen, Tuftofossen and the Styvefossen.

The Lægdafossen is an official named waterfall and can be found on all maps.
