Låtefossen

Waking up in the morning I know I have a long drive home and a hard day at work the day after… There was one more thing I had to stop and see though; on my way to Hardanger, just before the city of Odda, I had driven past a cool looking twin-waterfall called Låtefossen. I had a stop, took some pictures and drove home.

The total height of Låtefossen is 165 metres and is a well known tourist attraction in the area. It consists of two separate streams originating from a water above it called Låtevatnet. The waterfall was a popular tourist attraction for English and German tourists in the old days and there used to be a hotel just next to the waterfall. Tourists back then traveled by horse to see this twin-waterfall – today we use iron horses, haha! Just south of the waterfall there’s a “hidden” path up to where the hotel used to be and you can get a fantastic view of the waterfall that not too many tourists know about.
