This was the last hike of our trip in Norway. On the way back to Bergen, we decided to drive through the Jotunheim park via the Sognefjellet pass, open only in Summer. Our final destination was one of the highest waterfall in Norway, the Vettisfossen.
We found this hike very easy, also comparing the Bessegen ridge we hiked the day before. We parked the car at the parking lot near the Hjellefossen waterfall and started walking following the signals for the Vettisfossen waterfall. The majority of the trail goes aside of the river and we encountered few other waterfalls along the path. The terrain up to the Vetti farm is just solid packed gravel, with only the last kilometre made of a rocks. Near the waterfall, the rocks might be a bit slippery, therefore be careful. It is nothing too difficult though.
The Vettisfossen waterfall is quite impressive, with a free-fall of 275 metres. Indeed, we decided to eat our lunch at its base, feeling the refreshing water spray.
This post concludes our Norwegian trip report. Of course we are continuing hiking this summer, therefore stay tuned for some other posts.
