Wheelchair accessible.

The toilet building is open all year round. Emptying toilets from motorhomes and caravans is not permitted.

Where the Flesefossen waterfall runs down the mountainside, you will find the largest rest area along National Road 13 between Sand and Røldal.

This rest area has been given an extensive makeover, with a longitudinal steel and wood structure on a concrete platform as its distinctive feature.

The new toilets are incorporated in the northern part of the structure. The project also includes picnic furniture in the terrain as well as parking for nine passenger cars and two buses.

The aim of the project is to enable visitors to rest and enjoy the landscape space and the mighty waterfall in peace and quiet.
