Other beautiful waterfalls by the Sognefjord
Kvinnafossen falls 120 metres and is situated right beside the main road between Leikanger and Hella. During the spring thaw, the spray from the waterfall reaches across the road. When the snow melting is at its maximum strength you must be prepared to drive through an almost impenetrable cascade of water when passing the waterfall of Kvinnafossen. This waterfall is situated a few kilometres from Hella on the road to Leikanger and Sogndal.
According to legend, it is possible to see a rock formation in the shape of a woman when the flow of water in the river is just right (the word "kvinne" in Norwegian means woman). For this reason, passing cruise liners used to go close to land to observe this phenomenon.
On the hiking trip to Brekkefossen waterfall you will have a grand view of the fjord and into the valley. Start the walk from Flåm town centre on an asphalt road up the valley alongside the Flåm river. After a gentle 1,5 km walk, we continue up the mountainside on our way to the Brekke Waterfall. The rocky and steep trail quickly gains elevation and soon the small village of Flåm is visible through the trees. After about 30 minutes of uphill hiking, the trail opens up on a grassy ledge, offering beautiful views of the area. Join us on this hike to get a unique insight into the local culture, history and life by the fjord!

Viagra Falls, Sogndal
The river running between the lakes Anestølsvatnet and Dalavatnet, foremost in the Sogndalsdalen valley, is called the Viagra Falls or the Viagra River. In an old myth it is claimed that the water in the river enhances potency and fertility. Whether this is because the area has many goats on grass or the water from the glaciers is uncertain. However, the farms in the area are known to have many children.
