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…

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…

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…

Ringedalsfossen and the Trolltunga Waterfalls

Ringedalsfossen (also known as Skjeggedalsfossen) was definitely the most conspicuous waterfall in the Skjeggedal Valley, and it acted as my waterfalling excuse to go on the epic hike to Trolltunga.

Sagfossen and the Rullestad Waterfalls

Sagfossen was a conspicuous waterfall that we spotted while driving the E134 between Skarre and the nearby Langfossen Waterfall. Back when Julie and I first noticed this waterfall, we didn’t…

“Kjeragfossen”

“Kjeragfossen” was pretty much the main waterfall that I associate with the epic hike to the rock wedged between two vertical cliffs known as Kjeragbolten or often just Kjerag. Of the numerous…

Preikestolen Waterfalls

This Preikestolen Waterfalls page was kind of my waterfalling excuse to talk about the famous and impressive Preikestolen formation. That said, I did spot some noteworthy waterfalls on both the…

Hunnedalen Waterfalls

The point of this Hunnedalen Waterfalls page was to acknowledge the scenic valleys and waterfalls that we encountered on the drive between Sirdal and Dirdal. It pretty much covered the stretch of…

Sarpsfossen

Sarpsfossen (also referred to as Sarpefossen in the Norgeskart map) showed itself to us as a frighteningly powerful waterfall on the Glomma River in the city of Sarpsborg. Ordinarily I don’t tend…

Ramhultafallet

Ramhultafallet was a wide and multi-tiered waterfall that spilled a cumulative 64m over perhaps three main drops before dumping right into the Lake Lygnern. That lakeside location alone compelled…

Elgafossen (Algafallet)

Elgafossen (or more accurately Elgåfossen in Norwegian and Älgafallet in Swedish) was a shared waterfall between Norway and Sweden. In fact, its watercourse on a tributary of the Enningdalsälven…

Silverfallet

Silverfallet was one of two waterfalls of the same name that we visited in Sweden during our epic Scandinavia Trip in the Summer of 2019. This waterfall sat near the town of Skövde between…

Stalpet

The Stalpet Waterfall (which can also be called just “Stalpet”) was our introduction to waterfalling in Sweden. It was the first waterfall that we visited on our epic trip throughout Scandinavia…

“Date Day” (Sycamore Canyon Falls – June 1, 2019)

Actually, the scrambling up to the top of the falls wasn’t very trivial as I had to grip some sloping hard-rock surfaces that could easily be difficult to get a grip, especially if wet…
