    Vinnu Waterfall

    Vinnufossen has its outspring from Vinnubreen glacier, which is Møre and Romsdals largest glacier, and cascades down the mountainside with a 860 meters drop in several steps. Vinnufossen can be experienced from a laybay on highway 70, just a few kilometers from Sunndalsøra towards Oppdal. By far the nicest view you get if you keep walking the path a few hundred meters further up the valley.
