What to see in Hellesylt

Nestled in the embrace of towering mountains and mirrored waters, Hellesylt may be a small village, but it holds an array of experiences that will make any visit memorable.

One can't speak of Hellesylt without mentioning its most iconic attraction—the Hellesylt Waterfall. This roaring cascade divides the town centre and has been a magnet for artists and poets for generations. The force of the water, carving its way from the mountains and crashing down into the fjord below, is a sight to behold. Visitors often find a spot in the nearby cafes, where they can enjoy a warm beverage while being entranced by the raw power and beauty of the falls. Especially during spring and early summer when the snow melts, the waterfall is at its most majestic, offering a spectacular natural performance.

A short drive from the Hellesylt port takes you to a marvel of Nordic architecture and history—the Øye Stave Church. This wooden church, dating back to the 12th century, is one of the 28 stave churches still standing in Norway, representing the country's rich medieval heritage. While the church's exterior, with its dragonhead carvings and tiered roofs, is a reflection of ancient craftsmanship, the interior is a serene space adorned with beautiful wall paintings and intricate wooden carvings. Legend has it that the church was once submerged under water and later rediscovered, adding a layer of mystery to its already profound history. The verdant surroundings further complement the church's wooden structure, making it a haven of peace and spirituality.

Hellesylt is the gateway to the Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Norway's most photographed landscapes. While there are multiple ways to explore this natural wonder, kayaking stands out as the most intimate. Paddle through the tranquil waters of the fjord, flanked by dramatic cliffs and cascading waterfalls and experience nature up close and personal. As you glide silently, you'll be dwarfed by the sheer magnitude of the cliffs rising above you, making it a humbling and transformative experience. The Seven Sisters, The Suitor and The Bridal Veil are some of the notable waterfalls you'll encounter during your journey. The pristine waters often mirror the blue skies and majestic mountains, making every stroke of the paddle a photogenic moment. For those unfamiliar with kayaking, several local outfitters offer guided tours, ensuring a safe and enriching adventure.
