Mordolefossen (or more accurately Mordølefossen) was a waterfall that Julie and I nearly confused with the more conspicuous Feigefossen nearby as they seemed to have a somewhat uncanny resemblance.

It turned out that we noticed this waterfall (just barely) as we were driving back from Jostedalen and headed towards Skjolden.

That was when Julie spotted the falls from across the Luster Fjord (Lustrafjorden) and she captured it with her camera from the car while I was busy concentrating on the narrow road.


I was only able to identify this waterfall by name after the trip when we realized that Norgesglasset gave it a name.

Aside from us being able to spot this falls, there wasn’t much more about it that we know or could say about it.

Maybe on the next trip, we might pay a little more attention to it to see if there might be better views or hiking trails that might yield a more substantial experience than what we were able to get with it.


Mordolefossen resides in the Luster Municipality. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website or Facebook page.


We happened to spot this waterfall while driving north on the Rv55 around the Luster township (roughly 6km west of Skjolden) as we stole a glance across the fjord. I didn’t recall there were official pullouts for it.

For context, Skjolden (at the head of the Luster Fjord or Lustrafjorden) was about 124km (or 2.5 hours drive with a ferry crossing) north of Flåm, 346km (about 5.5 hours drive) northwest of Oslo, and 288km (over 4.5 hours drive with a ferry crossing) northeast of Bergen.
