Utladalen (or Utladal [The suffix "-en" is a form of the Norwegian language definite article and means "the". Hence "Utladalen" is equivalent to "the Utladal." Both forms can be found in English language text.] ) is a valley in the municipality of Årdal, stretching north from Øvre Årdal. Utladalen is considered to be unique in Norway and internationally.

Utladalen is Norway's deepest valley. The main valley, when measuring from Årdalstangen is 40 km long and is surrounded by 50 peaks above 2,000 metres. A comfortable walking road has been constructed, funded by voluntary contributions. Crossing the river on four spectacular bridges, the walking path ends up at one of Norway's tallest waterfalls, Vettisfossen.

The Utladalen Landscape Protection Area was established along with the adjacent Jotunheim National Park in 1980 and covers about 300 km². It includes both the valley and areas that extend both westward and northward to Jotunheim National Park, and eastward to lake Tyin.
