About Glomnesfossen Waterfall

The Glomnesfossen Waterfall is easy to spot as you’re driving around the eastern end of Oppstrynsvatnet Lake near Hjelle, with Segestad Mountain Farm perched above. The falls can be easily reached with a short hike, and the viewpoint offers a nice perspective back towards the lake. From the falls you can extend the hike with a visit to the farm, or further up into the Glomsdalen Valley.

Getting there

The trail begins near Glomnes, 1 kilometer west from Hjelle on the northern shore of Oppstrynsvatnet Lake. Hjelle is an entry point to Norwegian Scenic Route Gamle Strynefjellsvegen.

Park in the small, paid, roadside parking area.

From the parking lot, continue along the road to Glomnes. Cross the river and follow the road up to the right through the woods.

At the end of this road, continue on the trail to the left and then bear right on your way to a small clearing with a view of the falls.
