I saw Huldra dancing

I saw her dancing in a red dress, under the waterfalls. She was singing with the most beautiful voice, trying to tempt me to follow her. But I was warned, and held the distance (and my wife was there, too..).

Different, but still the same

Just a few hundred meters from where this picture was taken, the river Gaula suddenly changes character and becomes a wild and thundering waterfall. It is especially impressive in June, when water from melting snow in the nearby mountains supplies it with extra power.

About 40 minutes by car followed by a short walk through the forest, takes us to the lovely Rjukandefossen, an 18 metres high waterfall. Its name means something like “Smoking waterfalls”.
Unfortunately, the sky was grey and the light a bit dull today, but it is still a pretty place to visit.
