Northern Europe's largest canyon, wich was formed during the last Ice Age, around 10, 000 years ago. You may experience the Jutulhogget Canyon on foot by descending the precipitious path, or you may enjoy the view right up on its edge.

This "canyon" is important and interesting because of how it was formed. Good information for tourists at the site. Not far from the main road (E3) - about one kilometre.
