Høgfallet is a nice waterfall near Gjøvik (Snertingdalen), in the region Oppland, Norway.

The waterfall Høgfallet is close to Lillehammer. Near Gjøvik there is a little hamlet called Redalen (along road 4). Here road 249 (Snertingdalsvegen) runs up into the Snertingdalen. Høgfallet is located not far from the Snertingdaslvegen but the road to the waterfall is a private road and the owner won’t give permission to enter his property, so better don’t do this.

I am not sure if there is a legal way to approach the Høgfallet without trespassing. I see a pedestrian bridge above the Høgfallet, so maybe you can approach the waterfall from the north side of the river. I don’t think the waterfall itself is private property….

Høgfallet is a powerful waterfall with a single drop of appr. 8 meter. Certainly early in the season a lot of water squeezes itself through a narrow gap. In wintertime Høgfallet freezes creating a beautiful scenery.

The river Stokkeelva is a popular fishing location, full of trout. A fishing permit is required (tourist office at Gjøvik).
