 Brekkefossen waterfall

Kjosfossen waterfall is located in Aurland. It´s total fall is approx. 225 metres. The Flåm Line passes directly in front of and over the lower part of the waterfall, which is one of the main attractions for tourists who take the Flåm Line. The waterfall is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Norway. There is a small power station on the waterfall which is used to power the Flåm Line railway.

The waterfall is located about 1.5 kilometres northeast of Myrdal Station. During the main tourist season in the summer an actress dressed as a legendary "Huldra" (a seductive forest creature in Scandinavian folklore) dances and sings in front of the waterfall as the trains enter the station for the amusement of the tourists.

In Norway the "Huldra" is a stunningly beautiful naked woman with long hair, and has an animal´s tail and she has a cow´s tail. The Huldra actresses are all students from the Norwegian ballet school.
