“Let It Go” (Northern Norway and Swedish Lappland – June 29, 2019 to July 14, 2019)

…the ferries returned to the dock, it looked like line 2 was moving first, then line 1. However, lines 6 and 7 didn’t move at all. When line 1 was done loading, the ferry took off without us!…

“Righting Wrongs” (Southern and Fjord Norway – June 16, 2019 to June 29, 2019)

This wasn’t what the forecast had called for so I decided to wait out the squall. In the mean time, I was putting on waterproof pants and hiking boots inside the car (not a lot of room mind you)…

Angel Falls and Devils Slide

Angel Falls and Devils Slide were a pair of waterfalls on Willow Creek that spilled into the popular play areas on the north shore of Bass Lake. Of the two named waterfalls on Willow Creek…

Corlieu Falls and Red Rock Falls

Corlieu Falls and Red Rock Falls were a couple of waterfalls on Lewis Creek, which sat between the southern boundary of Yosemite National Park and Oakhurst. I looked upon these waterfalls as an…

“Completing Experiences” (Denmark and Sweden – June 12, 2019 to June 16, 2019 and July 26, 2019 to August 3, 2019)

But with us apparently not going to be going onto this particular ferry, I was now wondering if we had made a mistake in relying on ferries as clearly we weren’t going to make it to Frederiksborg…

Forsakar

The Forsakar Waterfall was the southernmost of the waterfalls that we encountered in Sweden, which alone kind of made it stand out to us as we didn’t expect any waterfalls this far south in the…

Danska Fall

Danska Fall (I’ve also seen it called Danska Fallen and Danska Fallet) turned out to be the last waterfall we visited on our epic 2019 Scandinavian Trip. It turned out to sit in one of Halland…

Gloppefossen

Gloppefossen was one of the highest permanent waterfalls (Reiårsfossen could be taller) in the Setesdal Valley with a cumulative drop of around 120m (or up to 140m if I include some of the cascades…

Laegdafossen and the Naeroyfjorden and Aurlandsfjorden Waterfalls

Laegdafossen (or more accurately Lægdafossen) was perhaps the most compelling waterfall that we encountered while doing the cruise between Flåm and Gudvangen. The falls had a cumulative drop of 580…

Bordalsgjelet

Bordalsgjelet (the “Bordal Gorge”; pronounced “BOR-dahls-yell-uh”) was what I consider to be kind of as close to an inside-the-gorge experience as I got in Norway. Typically, we explored such…

Sjurhaugfossen

Sjurhaugfossen was a roadside waterfall flowing on the Lærdalselvi River nestled deep in a gorge. According to the Norgeskart map, the falls could be as little as 5m tall or if you count…

Sognefjell Waterfalls

The Sognefjell Waterfalls page is my waterfalling excuse to talk about the popular Sognefjellet National Tourist Route (Sognefjellsvegen) that cut right through the heart of Jotunheimen…

Drivandefossen

Drivandefossen (also called Krekafossen on Norgeskart) was one of those overlooked waterfalls that we happened to miss when we first stayed in Skjolden back on our first trip to Norway in 2005…

Boyabreen Waterfalls

The Boyabreen Waterfalls (more accurately called Bøyabreen) was my way of paying homage to the collection of waterfalls we saw around the popular Bøyabreen Glacier. Of all the glaciers where we…

Ovstefossen (Ovstebrufossen)

Ovstefossen (more accurately Øvstefossen; I’ve also seen it called Ovstebrufossen or Øvstebrufossen) was yet another one of the accidental unplanned roadside waterfalls that we ended up stopping…

Krunefossen and the Kjenndalen Waterfalls

Krunefossen was a gushing waterfall at the terminus of the Krunebreen arm of the vast Jostedalsbreen Glacier. According to my Norgeskart measurements, the entire waterfall lost about 480m in…

Eafossen (Hyttfossen)

Eafossen (also known as Hyttfossen) was kind of our waterfalling excuse to talk about the UNESCO World Heritage area of Røros. We actually didn’t realize that this waterfall existed until we…

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…
