Introducing Hellesylt

The old Viking port of Hellesylt, through which a roaring waterfall cascades, is altogether calmer, if less breathtaking, than Geiranger.

The Peer Gynt Galleriet is a collection of fairly kitsch bas-relief wood carvings illustrating the Peer Gynt legend and fashioned by local chippy Oddvin Parr. You may find the food at the complex's cafeteria more to your taste.

The tourist office is in the Peer Gynt Gallery. For hikers, it carries Tafjardfjella, a walking map at 1:50,000, and for cyclists, Hellesylt Mountain Biking Map.
