Sputrefossen with its good water flow is a sight worth the trip on its own. The water masses hit a point up in the mountainside and are tossed into the air to then make a nice bow in their fall toward the bottom of the canyon. The canyon that Sputrefossen ends in collects not one, but several waterfalls . From the north side it is easy to get down to the foot of the falls and enjoy the drops of water that soar through the air and waters the plants that grow here.
On the way down the canyon there is lush vegetation. The rock here is phyllite and you find an overwhelming diversity of plants here - from those that grow on dry ridges to those who seek to water sources. The steep descent consists of loose sediment and here plants grow which you normally find on steep hillsides on about 800 meters height. Near the bottom, the ferns dominate. The vertical side to the east gets a lot of water splashing from the waterfalls. It is interesting to see how moss, rosea, dense grasses and ferns clinge to small ledges or cracks there.
From the outset of Slettefjellvegen, at the boom barrier, drive about 700 meters until you have passed the cattle guard and park your car at the sharp bend. You walk along the top of the canyon to the north side, where you make your way back down.
