The Fossestien trail is actually very big but most people tend to do the part that leads to the big waterfall Hovsfossen. Well marked (just follow the Fs) and accessible to families. Lovely afternoon.

Close to the road, easy accessible for all. Beautiful nature and gravel paths all the way from parking to the bridge and waterfall. Excellent place to stop by when on the road over Gaular.

What a great location, bridge and surroundings. Crossing is a bit scary as it's partly "see through" and the middle section is narrow (albeit perfectly safe!) and the sound from the waterfall is daunting, but crossing is completely a must do! There are gates on...More

There is a sizeable carpark here which looks quite new. The new bridge over the waterfall is interesting, in stainless steel. The waterfall isn't anything special by Norwegian standards but is in an interesting setting, with an old hydro station at the base. We particularly...More

Stopped here while driving the tourist route. The bridge design is interesting. Plenty of parking and overflow parking areas. Couple of picnic benches for a snack or meals. Once you cross the bridge, there are hiking trails that are part of the Fossestein route. We...More

This bridge is NOT in Forde! Just a heads up! We came in by bus to Forde hoping to experience this activity. It is one hour away with no public transportation. Disappointing that this isn't explained on this page.

An interesting meaning to the name which others have explained but the power and force of the Likholefossenwaterfall is one to behold and be amazed by.

We drove the Gaularfjellet National Tourist Route and hadn't heard of "Likholefossen" until we almost drove past it. So glad we stopped!! Fantastic spot for photos and a picnic. Lovely waterfall, bridge, big wide rocks for sitting and a cute old hydropower station from 100...More

Really close. Narrow, but really solid, bridge. Free and always open. Feel the water flow. Just don't step anywhere slippery on the river banks.

Foss is Norwegian and means waterfall. "Likhole" is a bit more grotesque, and means "Corps cave". People living far up in the valley needed two days to transport their dead ones to the church. During the night the bodies were hidden in this cave by...More
