GAULARFJELLET “Lunch on the Mountain”

Are you ready to experience Gaularfjellet? We tempt you with a homemade packed “Lunch on the Mountain” that you can take with you on your journey or you can find your way to a lovely farm restaurant. Enjoy it outside in the open air by a waterfall or visit a restaurant in Eldalsdalen. 

“Lunch on the mountain” contains fresh baguette or buns with delectable spreads and toppings, fresh greens and a pastry. You can also add a bottle of locally pressed fruit juice or lemonade to your order.  The businesses delivering the local flavors of this lunch are located along the route. We hope you will enjoy this energy-packed “Lunch on the Mountain” and that it enhances your experience between the falls along The Scenic Route of Gaularfjellet.

Gaularfjellet welcomes you to many experiences in Fosseheimen (the waterfall country) – a varied landscape encircled by Sognefjorden, Dalsfjorden and Førdefjorden. The protected Gaular watercourse meanders through rivers, lakes, rapids and waterfalls along the route. The lush, green mountain and fjordscapes greet you with a smile. The passage has two farm restaurants (see description below) and seven ideal picnic spots for lunch breaks: Eldalstunet, FlatheimUtsikten, Mirage (Torsnesstølen), Likholefossen, Hestad, Vallestadfossen, Haukedalen and Fleten (Holsavatnet).
