More og Romsdal Waterfalls (Norway)

TABLE OF CONTENTS
More og Romsdal (more accurately spelled Møre og Romsdal) probably had the most dramatic scenery of Fjord Norway of all the counties we encountered during our June-July 2005 visit to the country. The county featured perhaps the most famous and magnificent of the country's fjords in the Geiranger Fjord
(Geirangerfjorden), which also featured the Seven Sisters Waterfalls
, abandoned farms with rich history, and a bunch of other waterfalls both thick and thin. In fact, I think in the Disney movie Frozen
, Arendelle could very well be an animated version of Geirangerfjorden.
The county also featured the steep-walled Romsdal Valley
(Romsdalen) that I thought was very much like a Norwegian counterpart to the incomparable Yosemite Valley
. There were numerous waterfalls that we encountered in Romsdalen
, including Vermafossen
. Moreover, Romsdalen featured very tall mountain and cliff formations like Trolltindane and Romsdalshorn, which was kind of how Yosemite featured cliff and rock formations like El Capitan, Half Dome, and many others. Amazingly, that wasn't the only waterfall-laced valley we visited in the county. Indeed, we also passed through Sunndalen Valley
, where we learned after our trip that one of the numerous waterfalls we had encountered happened to be the allegedly sixth highest waterfall in the world in Vinnufossen
! Plus, we also were blown away by the surreal beauty of Eikesdalen
and its many waterfalls
after visiting perhaps one of Norway's most legitimately tall waterfalls in Mardalsfossen
But wait, there's more! Møre og Romsdal County also had its own famous serpentine road at Trollstigen
, which scaled a once impassable wall between two waterfalls named Stigfossen and Tverrdalsfossen
. Then, we even saw the convergence of three or four major rivers at the hamlet of Åmotan, where we also saw three major waterfalls in close proximity to each other in Svøufossen and Reppdalsfossen
as well as the surprising Linndalsfossen
. And we even went a little off the beaten path into the Trollheimen Mountains where we visited the waterfall Nauståfossen
Just when Julie and I thought we were getting waterfall fatigued after having gone through Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane Counties immediately before this one, the hits just kept coming. Thus, we had to break up the waterfall listings on this page into the following subregions - Nordmøre District (Sunndal and Surnadal Municipalities)
, Romsdal District (Rauma and Nesset Municipalities)
, and Sunnmøre District (Stranda and Norddal Municipalities)
This beautiful part of Norway really put the country over the top in our minds in terms of the most beautiful places on earth. I still feel like we only scratched the surface of what was possible here, and we really need to make a return trip! Anyhow, check out our humble sampling of what we experienced so far by scrolling below and following the links...
