This area offers 4 waterfalls of varying difficulty. The area is exposed to the sun and after longer periods of sunny weather the waterfalls will be destroyed. There are more waterfalls located south of this area which we believe haven't had any ascents.
Approach - Drive from Rjukan Centre towards Kongsberg on Road 37. When you arrive at the bridge where Road 37 takes a right, continue straight ahead and follow Road 364 to the small village of Atrå. Drive through Atrå and take a left signed 'Steinsbølet/Kalhovd'. Follow this road for 6.5 km for the Hakkespetten Area, which is located on the left side of the valley.
