Overview
More
Manafossen is Rogaland's biggest waterfall and Norway's ninth tallest free fall waterfall. From the parking area you proceed on foot along the southeast bank of the river. The path up to Manafossen is steep and rugged in places. The steepest spots have steps and chains that you can hold on to as you climb. From the path you have a fine view over Manafossen, which has a free fall of 92 metres. The waterfall is protected and is one of Rogaland's biggest tourist attractions. You can continue your trip into Mandal and visit Man farm. This was the first farm that was cleared in Fidjadalen valley - probably already in the early Middle Ages. On the lush grassy slopes around the main building there are numerous remnants of the mountain farm that was in use until 1915. Today the restored farmhouse is the only remaining original building. A new building sleeps 34 persons. In the basement you'll find an exhibition featuring the mountain farm's history, the conservation area Frafjordheiene and the work of the Jaeren Recreational Council. The basement also serves as a heated shelter, where you're welcome to warm up while you eat your lunch when visiting Man farm. Follow the signs from the turnoff at algard, in the direction of Byrkjedal. Parking.

We went there in the middle of march, everything was frozen, it was the simple pure beautiful nature. Much nicer than in the summer time!

The road is under construction and there is a bigger and longer workaround. If you plan on leaving to visit today (8 July 2017) or tomorrow make sure to check the status of the road. I am sure it is a lovely visit but will...More

I brought my friend to Månafossen to get out into the Norwegian outdoors early December. It's about an hr drive out of Stavanger and it's an easy, picturesque drive. The roads are wider than the usual mountain roads. When you're about 5-10 mins away from...More

It is not very known but defitively deserves a visit. Dime partes of the paths are quite difficult, more than Preikestolen.

This home was very fun. It involves some minor climbing but it's all good fun. Probably not something someone with a bad knee or anything should do, it is a bit tough but totally worth it. And if you just take it at a slow...More
