Hiafossen is a great waterfall east of Årdal, between Nes and the Viglesdalen in the region Rogaland, Norway.

From Årdal drive east on road 13 for 5 kilometer until you see a sign “Nes” going left. Follow the signs for Nes until you reach the end of the road and a parking.

Here the trail starts following the river Storåna upstream. Cross the bridge and go left. Keep south of the river. On the way to Hiafossen you also pass Sendingfossen (also a nice waterfall). The walk takes about 40 minutes (2,7 kilometer).

At Hiafossen there is an information sign about people that drowned here in the past. So you have to be careful?

Hiafossen is named after an old farm. Hiafossen is the biggest waterfall when walking along the river Storåna. I estimate that the height of the waterfall is appr. 35 meter.

There are more waterfalls/rapids in the river Storåna, a perfect place to visit.
