The scenery and waterfalls in Husedalen simply take your breath away. Four stunning waterfalls are close to each other along the hiking trail from Kinsarvik up to the Hardangervidda mountain plateau. A hike from the car park to the uppermost fall and back takes 5-6 hours. The area is easily accessible and a good alternative for hikes of any length. An easier alternative is to walk from the centre of Kinsarvik along the river to the first waterfall. Start walking from the crossroad at route 13 in the centre of Kinsarvik towards Husedalen. 45 minutes walk each way. Free map at the tourist office in Kinsarvik. Husedalen D 10 GPS 60.3520 6.7570
