Odda - Røldal - Odda.
On this tour, you will travel from Odda through a valley of five major waterfalls, including Strandsfossen, Tjødnadalsfossen, Vidfoss, the famous Låtefossen and Espelandsfossen.
There will be a bus change at Seljestad. You will then be taken over the mountain crossing of Røldalsfjellet. On the way down to Røldal, the hairpin roads will give you plenty of time to admire the views overlooking the mountains and Lake Røldalsvatnet.
Once in Røldal, take a tour of the ancient stave church (15 June to 31 August - entrance fee). The church is famous for its healing crucifix, which is still in the church. Røldal was one of the most important sites of pilgrimage in Norway during the middle ages and pilgrims continued to come until 1835, longer than any other place in Norway. The church is beautifully decorated, and is still the parish church for Røldal.
The Tourist Information in Røldal is open from mid-June until mid-August. They have a map of short village walks and other things to do during your visit in Røldal.
Bus back to Odda. Change at Seljestad. Enjoy the beautiful views overlooking the Oddadalen valley.
Departure from: Odda Bus station
About our trips
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
Trips are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the trip is bookable.
