 Hellesylt Waterfall

Hellesylt Waterfall is one of the most photographed waterfall in this area. The falls divide Hellesylt in two, providing the little settlement with a special atmosphere. Hellesylt is under constant threat from the mountain Åkerneset, which is about to erode into the Sunnylvsfjord. A collapse could cause a tsunami destroying most of downtown Hellesylt.

Hellesylt is a small village and lies at the head of the Sunnylvsfjord, which is a branch of the Storfjord, and which the more famous Geirangefjord in turn branches off nearby. In the summertime, thousands of tourists travel through or stay in Hellesylt each day. Most of them take the ferry to Geiranger, which in high season runs every one and a half hours. The village is surrounded by mountains and valleys. The standard of living is said to be one of the best in Norway. The Sunnylven church is located in Hellesylt.
