This town is really small but on a sunny day the town and the waterfalls that are right in town were amazing. Our cruise ship made an unplanned stop in this town and everyone enjoyed it. The town is very small but it is pretty,...More

The long trip was worth it. Hellesylt is just a small village, yet it attracks many tourists. Hellesyltfossen is indeed a spectacular tourist spot in Norway! 👍🏼🇳🇴

We were in Stranda and decided to visit this small town. Very peaceful and amazingly beautiful with roaring mini waterfall. Can be a memorable stopover if you are driving by this area. There was also a nice souvenir shop.

Cruise ships tend to make short stops in Hellesylt on their way towards/from Geiranger. In fact, it would be optimal to stop here before reaching Fossevandring in Geiranger, as in our humble opinion the latter is simply more attractive. You do not have many alternatives...More
