This is quite an easy summer hike to Brekkefossen Waterfall. It starts off with a recently constructed path of steps all the way to the Brekkefossen viewpoint. Next is a little more challenging and steep forest path. If it’s rainy, there is a lot of water running down the path. You may encounter several herds of sheep on your way, but the animals are usually really shy. The next part of this trek is physically far less demanding, but since the trail goes through swamps you should bring some good waterproof gear. It is possible to avoid this by leaving the trail and walking around. The last part requires you to step over the stream and finish with a steep walk all the way up to the lake. Keep an eye on red “T” markings and you will find your way up.Show more

The hike is short and steep, offering stunning views of the waterfall, Flam and Sognefjord. Follow the wooden sign to the Brekkefossen Waterfall. The waterfall is visible from the road, half-hidden behind a wooded knoll. The rocky trail quickly gains elevation alongside a forested ridge. Soon, the small city of Flam is visible through the trees, showing just how much elevation you’ve gained. The trail switchbacks up the rocky knoll, traversing through wooded cow pasture.Show more
