Hällingsåfallet is a waterfall and a nature reserve in Jämtland County in Sweden. It is part of the European Union-wide Natura 2000 network. The nature reserve is centred on Hällingsåfallet waterfall and the river canyon into which it discharges. The nature reserve is located at an altitude of around 330m to 400m above

the sea level, and the waterfall itself is 43m high. The canyon into which it falls is circa 800m long, making it the longest in Sweden, and between 15m and 60m wide. The canyon was probably not formed by the current stream running there, but rather during the last ice age, when the melting ice eroded what was already a crack in the bedrock here. However, it cannot be excluded that the canyon is even older.
