It's an amazing hike of approximately 3 hours with some challenging parts, but an amazing view in the end. Definitely worth it :)

The hike cost us a small two hours one-way. It was a pretty steep path, with ropes, bridges and ladders. They were all in a good state. The hike starts in a nice forest and follows the main river all the way upstream. After the...More

This hike is classified as red. The start was doable but when reaching some climbing is required using ropes. The path is very crowded.

The bus only to Odda and then on foot. This walk took us the whole day. On the way, huge fields of strawberries. Was beautiful and delicious!

I think yes. Officially it is OK (See the "visit Norway" site). The weather is very important. I would check 2-3 days before. If it is very rainy you should either prepare for very wet weather (boots, raincoat) or drop it... More
