About Vivelid / Valursfossen

This is a magnificent hike towards the popular Veigdalen valley. In Øvre Eidfjord, you head for Hjølmo and follow this road (not suitable for vehicles longer than six metres) for approximately 10 kilometres through dramatic scenery, which make this drive an experience in itself. From the road you can see the Vedalsfossen waterfall on your right-hand side.

Park your car on the upper car park at Hjølmaberget (by the river Berdølo), and follow the marked footpath for approximately one-and-a-half hours to Vivelid. You can return the same way to the car park, or you may continue from Vivelid via the Valurfossen waterfall, which falls 272 metres into the Hjølmadalen valley. This footpath is partly unmarked and it will take you a bit longer to finish your tour.
