The Måbødalen Valley - Vøringsfossen Waterfall, Hiking Trails

The Måbødalen Valley is among the 5 most visited attractions in Norway. This huge ravine, created by water and ice through thousands of years, is a marvellous sight. The Vøringsfossen waterfall (182 meters) is most spectacular, and there are paths leading to the top of the fall, as well as to the bottom. There are three roads through the valley.

1) The old footpath, which is a challenge to your physical condition. 67 curves and 800 meters height difference from bottom to top.

2) The first road for cars, finished in 1918, is a masterpiece in the art of engineering. Most of the road is still there, today only accessible by foot. Try to imagine that this road was part of the main road between Oslo and Bergen until 1985!

3) The new road, built mainly in tunnels which is also a piece of work that shows what Norwegian road engineers had to deal with when trying to “conquer nature”.
