Månafossen and beyond
This walk goes past the spectacular Månafossen waterfall and up
into the beautiful valley beyond. This is a classic U-shaped glacial valley
with plenty of places to stop for a picnic. You can hike for hours or
even days from here using the network of tourist huts to overnight.

This walk begins with the climb up to the Månafossen waterfall. Continue
on upwards and around the chasm cut by the waterfall, through woodland,
and into the great open U-shaped valley above. For a good scramble over
big boulders continue 2km up the valley to the glacial morraine and the
lake beyond. It is beautiful here.
Come here in, or just after, bad weather; the river in flood is definitely worth seeing and the waterfall can be quite awesome after prolonged heavy rain.
Contact the Turistforening for more information on overnighting in mountain hyttes (huts) in this area.
