 Rjukandefossen waterfall

Rjukandefossen waterfall is a double waterfall of approximately 18 metres located in the vicinity of the village Tuv in Hemsedal. The Rjukandefoss receives water from Mørkedøla which is a catchment for much of the melting snow in the Hemsedal fell. A suspension bridge is located about 50 - 100 metres after the waterfall, which can be used to cross the river.

Hemsedal has a nickname "Skandinavian Alpes". The ski center was opened in Holdeskaret in 1961. The first piste was Tottenløypa. Pist preparation was done by volunteers until 1968. In 1983 opened the first chairlift, Olaheisen. Solheisen is a couple of lifts located in Grøndalen. Both skisenters were bought by Skistar. Skistar also owns Trysil skisenter, Sälen and Åre, Vemedalen and Hammarbybacken in Sweden. Hemsedals cross-country stadium is located at Gravset. There are 10 km of lighted trails from Gravset.
