  • A very enjoyable walk in beautiful nature, with the snow covering the ground and the waterfall looking magical. In my experience I'd say it's easily walkable even in winter. Don't expect a long...  more »

  • Valnesfossen is a great place for listening to the waterfall and let the mind play free. Fresh air where you can sit down for as long as you want. I had a good trip here during a warm day. I stopped below the waterfall and walk up the hill, and then stop up at the river, and enjoy the view from the top. The shore is safer, at least below the bridge where the road crosses the river. This  is a waterfall south of Valnes, not far from Bodø in the region Nordland, Norway. Valnesfossen is located along road 17. The road runs over the top of the waterfall but parking the car is a problem here. It is also possible to hike to the bottom of Valnesfossen. Access to Valnesfossen is possible from the junction Fv17>Valnes. From here you have to walk upstream on a forrest road (paralel to the river) until you reach Valnesfossen after 1,5 kilometer (25 minutes). The walk is easy and standing at the bottom of the waterfall gives you a certain feeling: how powerful water is and how big the waterfall is. Valnesfossen is the biggest waterfall in the region of Bodø with a free fall of 60 meters. The river Valnesfossen can be quit powerful which makes the Valnesfossen a superb waterfall to visit.
