Mordolefossen

(Mordølefossen)

Mordolefossen is a big waterfall along the Lustrafjorden, near Skjolden in the region Sogn og Fjordane, Norway.

Sometimes waterfalls can only be seen from a distance because they are hard or impossible to reach. Mordolefossen is such a waterfall. Driving at the east side of the Lustrafjorden, road 331, just south of Skjolden you will see a glimpse of the huge Mordolefossen. You will only notice this waterfall if you know its there.

A better view you will have at the other side (west) of the Lustrafjorden, before Luster, just after the Otta tunnel. You can park the car at a white house.

Mordolefossen is a waterfall with a single drop of appr. 190 meter. The Mordølefossen plunges down in two steps over 525 meters and is fed by the river Mordøleelvi, which origin lies at the Nobbafjelli on a height of 1508 meters. I don’t know if you can count in the total drop, but it is quit impressive.

There is a path, west of the river, going up to øygarden. Maybe from there you will have a good view on the waterfall?

There are a lot of great waterfalls in the Lustrafjorden area. Drivandefossen, in the Morkridsdalen, is a gorgeous waterfall and easy to reach. 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.
