17 Huldra Dancing at Kjosfossen along Flåmsbana near Flåm, Norway

As you step off the train, you will hear music. You assume this adds ambiance while you admire Kjosfossen. Then a flash of red amongst the trees distracts your eyes from the waterfall. A young woman with flowing blond hair is mysteriously dancing. She quickly disappears behind a bolder or decayed stone building. A few seconds later, she reappears someplace else. This is Huldra. According to Norse folklore, this forest spirit lives underground until an unmarried man approaches. She uses her seductive beauty to lure her prey. The performance is conducted by students of the Norwegian Ballet School.
