How to get there

Safety

Remember your biking helmet and a waterbottle on a warm day

The edges at Rjukandefossen waterfall have a long fall down, so proceed with caution

Tip

By finding the path onward to Rjukandefossen waterfall, you will be able to witness the waterfall in all its glory, enjoy your food and maybe go swimming!

Description

Family friendly trip with both gravel road and bike paths. Along the trip you will pass one of Hemsedals well known attractions Rjukandefossen waterfall. Here you will find a nice swimming spot, an area for picnic opportunities and a small suspension bridge (Here there is also toilet opportunities). From Venåsen you can continue along the Old Kings Road towards Bjøberg/Lærdal, or you can cycle back alongside Rv 52.

 

The waterfall Rjukandefossen is one of Hemsedals most visited attractions, and just a small footpath away on this cycling trip. 

The biking trip itself is estimated to be short, but with a stop at the beautiful waterfall, it will for sure take up more of the day. The scenery is astonishing, and you get to experience real, Norwegian nature at its finest at Rjukandefossen.

Bring your food and swimming trunks on the trip Tuv - Venåsen.
