There are a few things I can remember when visiting the Hesjedalsfossen. First thing I remember was the small roads, just wide enough for 1 car. The second thing was the bad weather and the third thing was the impression the Hesjedalsfossen left behind. There was so much water thundering down that I really felt the power of it.

Only thing was that the waterfall is directly situated next to the road. Such a waterfall deserves an astonishing surrounding, but you can’t have it all.

When driving on road 569, between Eidslandet and Kalland, you can’t miss the Hesjedalsfossen, a nice twinfall. With a height of 90 meters and an enormous power this is one of the few waterfalls with an rating of four stars. A must to see.

    Hesjedalsfossen is also where the Norwegian Metal Sound was born: Sound engineer “Pytten” took a band in his car and drove them to Hesjedalsfossen, and explained that THAT was what he wanted: A massive wall of sound.

    Result – Norwegian Metal.
