One of our oldest tourist attractions
Allerede på 1800-tallet, ble særlig Tyske og Britiske turister fraktet med båt til Hardangerfjorden. Vidre ble de fraktet med hest og vogn langs Sandvinvatnet og vidre inn i Odda-dalen for å se fossen. Den dag i dag er fossen en av våre mest besøkte natur-attraksjoner. Already in the 1800s, was particularly German and British tourists transported by boat in to the Hardanger Fjord. From the fjord in Odda, they were transported by horse-drawn carriage along Sandvinvatnet and Forward into Odda valley to see the waterfall. Today is Låtefossen one of our most visited natural attractions.
