Incredibly beatiful and challenge, say people who have seen alpine complexes around the world. 

  • Ferry rides across the Storfjord
  • Gudbransjuvet with the miracle legends. Gudbrandsjuvet is a 5 metre narrow and 20–25 metre high ravine through which the Valldøla River forces itself. The waters have formed a complex of deep potholes and intricate formations. The depth down from the surface of the water is about equal to the depth of ravine down to the river.According to a story from the 1500’s, the ravine was named after a man called Gudbrand, who ran off with his bride and saved himself from his angry pursuers by jumping over the ravine at its narrowest point. Gudbrand was declared an outlaw for his deeds and lived the rest of his life in a stone hut in one of the side-valleys above Gudbrandsjuvet.
  • Lunch at a restaurant on the Strawberries valley
  • Trollstigen
  • Village Valldalen — our fruits capital. 

    Valldal is surrounded by attractive alpine mountains and steep, green hills. A wild river runs through the valley creating several nice waterfalls, including Holsfossen, Gudbrandsjuvet, and Skjerdsura these waterfalls are next to the road.

    Despite the northern latitude, Valldal has a mild climate and is famous for cherries, apples, raspberries, and strawberries produced on a commercial scale. The thick forests are home to a large number of red deer, roe deer, reindeer, and wolverine.
