A priest from the local communiy managed to get down into Helvete (Hell) and when he reached the edge on his way up again, with old, moldy bones in his hands, he said he can now claim being the only priest in the country who have been to Hell and gotten out in one piece!! Northern Europes largest potholes, one of the wildest thing you se and experience in the Norwegian nature!!

And a play on words, Helvete. Nice little walk tour viewing this nature phoenomena. A cafeteria serving simple food such as waffles and nice people working there. Don't forget the souvernirs and diploma for having travelled to Helvete (Hell and Back).

That is absolutely true. Norway have a lot of nice places to visit but none of them has Northern Europes largest potholes you can visit. On the other hand, in the admission fee (Nok 50,-) parking and toilets are included!! Hope to see you again...More

A stunning view of the forces of water working it's way thru rock. Warm and relaxing atmosphere in the cafeteria with Hells own kitchen boss making excellent waffles.

It was great here. Bring good shoes and enjoy! We were here almost alone, June 13, 2015, and we could see all in quiet! You will discover real forces of nature! And if you come from the valley, take a look at the beautiful stones...More

We took about an hour hiking this trail and came back feeling very adventurous. It's a trail that takes you down some rocks first, these can be a bit tricky if you're not that steady on your feet. Some parts of the trail are a...More
