Rykandfossen

(Rykanfossen)

Rykandfossen, sometimes also called Rykandsfossen, is a great waterfall east of Årdal, near Lyngsheia, in the region Rogaland, Norway.

From Årdal drive east on road 13 for 5 kilometer until you see a sign “Lyngsheia” going left. Follow the signs for Lyngshei. After 9,5 kilometer there is an exit to the left (no signs), go left here. The landscape looks quite desolate but you will be rewarded. After 4 kilometer Rykandfossen is located at the left side of the road.

There is no official trail but I have seen a lot of pictures from different angles, so a walk to a good viewpoint on Rykandfossen must be possible. At the end of the road, at the farm Åse you will see the waterfall from a nice viewpoint.
