Tuftofossen

(Tuftefossen)

The Tuftofossen is an unknown and unnamed waterfall in the river Tufteelvi which ends in the Næroyfjord. With a total height of 680 meters, the small village in front of the fall and a good view on the several cascades (from a distance) this waterfall is ready to take pictures from. TheTuftofossen is fed by several small lakes on the Vardafjellet, which goes on to an altitude of 1470 meters.

The Tuftofossen 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 and the Styvefossen.

The Tuftofossen is an unofficial named waterfall and I really don’t know why it can’t be found on map.
