Njupeskar

The Njupeskar Waterfall (or just Njupeskär) was a protected waterfall in Fulufjället National Park in western Sweden. There was a lot of fanfare concerning this waterfall because it had been…

Ristafallet

Ristafallet was the first of three significant waterfalls in a stretch of the drive along the E14 between Östersund and the Swedish border and ultimately to Trondheim. The falls featured a wide…

Handolsforsen

Handolsforsen (or more accurately Handölsforsen) was another one of the three major waterfalls that we visited between Östersund and the Swedish border en route to Trondheim, Norway. The other two…

Tannforsen

Tannforsen (or more accurately Tännforsen) was quite possibly our favorite waterfall in Sweden. Squeezed between two big lakes (Tännsjön and Våmviken), the outflow of Tännsjön runs on Åreälven and…

Fettjeafallet

Fettjeafallet (or more accurately Fettjeåfallet) was one of the taller waterfalls that was said to have a drop of 70m over two main drops on the Fettjeån river. With this excursion, it was pretty…

Hallingsafallet

Hallingsafallet (or more accurately Hällingsåfallet) was a spectacularly gushing waterfall where the Hällingsån dropped 43m right into the head of a deep canyon. After having seen some modest…

Linafallet

Linafallet (also called Linfallet) was kind of a case of mistaken identity for me. You see, there happened to be a different waterfall of the same name that promised to have a lot of volume as well…

Revelforsen

Revelforsen was a waterfall that I once dubbed the “Mo i Rana Waterfall” because I had no idea that it even had a name. The distinguishing feature of this waterfall was the interesting flume…

Kobbelvfossen

Kobbelvfossen was about as accidental of a waterfall visit as they come, especially since we never even knew this waterfall existed. That all changed while making the long drive between…

Kystriksveien Waterfalls

The Kystriksveien Waterfalls were kind of my waterfalling excuse to talk about the beautiful coastal drive along the county road Fv17, which is also known as the Kystriksveien. It’s hard to convey…

Skogvann Waterfall

The Skogvann Waterfall was another one of those waterfalls that I hadn’t planned on noticing nor stopping for. But it had enough of an impressive flow that I made it a point to pause for it…

Silverfallet

The Silverfallet in Bjorkliden (or more accurately Björkliden) was the second such waterfall named “Silver Falls” that I encountered in Sweden during our epic Sandinavia Trip in 2019. Unlike the…

Loktajohka Waterfall

The Loktajohka Waterfall (also spelled Låktatjåkka) was kind of an inadvertent waterfall encounter when I was driving from Narvik to pursue the Silverfallet by Bjorkliden. However, during the drive…

Skarvbergvika Waterfall and the Waterfalls on the way to Nordkapp

The waterfalls that I’m highlighting on this page were kind of my excuse to talk about my failed visit to Nordkapp from Alta. It turned out that the 3- to 3.5-hour drive to get all the way to the…

Alta Waterfall

The Alta Waterfall was what I was calling this conspicuous waterfall that kept showing itself to us when we were making the drive between the Alta sentrum and the Alten Lodge, where we were staying…

Pikefossen

Pikefossen was one of the few easily-accessible named waterfalls that we’ve encountered in Finnmark County (it might be the only one!). Unlike most of the waterfalls we’ve seen throughout Norway…

Navitfossen and Roykfossen

Navitfossen was a waterfall that we used as an excuse to break up the long drive between Tromsø and Alta. In Northern Norway, getting from place to place requires long distance driving so we needed…

Henrikafossen

Henrikafossen was a tall waterfall that we used as an excuse to break up our long drive between Svolvær and Tromsø so we could stretch our legs for a bit. This seemingly obscure waterfall seemed…

Sorvagen Waterfall

The Sorvagen Waterfall (or more accurately Sørvågen Waterfall) was our lone waterfalling attraction that we experienced in the magical Lofoten Islands. This waterfall actually didn’t have a formal…

Starefossen

Starefossen could very well be the closest named waterfall to the city center of Bergen. You’d think that with such fortunate positioning that this waterfall ought to get more notoriety…
