Skinnarbu Rjukan was created by Norsk Hydro at the turn of the century. The name comes from Rjukanfossen, the "smoking" falls, which were a famous sight before Sam Eyde harnessed it as the new community´s most important source of power. Before it was developed by Hydro, Vestfjorddalen was a road-less, barely accessible out-of-the-way place.

There are developed tourist areas at Gaustablikk below the Gaustatoppen mountain and at Skinnarbu near the Møsvatn lake.
