Mollisfossen

Mollisfossen was perhaps our favorite of the waterfalls we had encountered north of the Arctic Cricle so far. It was said to have a total drop of 269m that started off with upper cascades…

Fosselvfossen

Fosselvfossen was a waterfall that Julie and I never even knew about until we just happened to notice it on a paper place mat in a cafe in Storslett as we were having a late lunch/dinner after…

The Lyngen Alps Waterfalls and the Kafjord Waterfalls

The Kafjorden Waterfalls page (more accurately spelled Kåfjorden in Norwegian or Gáivuotna in Sami) was a page where I’m attributing the waterfalls we’ve seen as we were driving the E6 highway…

“Du må snakke mer norsk!” (Northern Norway – July 6, 2005 to July 9, 2005)

By now, I was getting tired of driving. Just how much longer did we have to drive until we arrive at Storslett? Complicating the situation was that I badly needed a restroom break…

Sprutfossen

Sprutfossen was a bit of a disappointment to Julie and I. We originally thought that the detour into the Plurdal Valley (Plurdalen) where we’d find this waterfall would only take us about 30…

Formofossen

Formofossen was a powerful river waterfall on the Sanddøla River with a reported drop of 34m. I doubted that the waterfall’s main plunge was that tall based on what we were able to see, which the…

Grongstadfossen

Grongstadfossen (I’ve also seen it spelled Grungstadfossen) was said to be the tallest waterfall in the Høylandet municipality at 75m. From the picnic area where we parked the car and got the view…

Laksforsen

Laksforsen was a significant river waterfall where the Vefsna River fell about 16m in total. Each time we’ve seen the falls (in early July 2005 and in mid-July 2019), the falls had put on a serious…

Bredekfossen

Bredekfossen was one of those confounding waterfalls that haunted me since our first trip to Norway in early Summer of 2005. Back then, even though I had witnessed the waterfall, I only realized…

Henfallet

Henfallet (pronounced “HEN-fall-uh”) was unlike the other waterfalls we had visited throughout Norway in that this giant wasn’t near any of the famous fjords along the country’s west. In fact, it…

Svoufossen and Reppdalsfossen

Svoufossen (also called Svøufossen or Svøufallet) was the first of the three major waterfalls we saw converging on the community of Åmotan (apparently meaning “converging of the rivers”). Almost in…

Linndalsfossen

Linndalsfossen (I’ve also seen it referred to as Lindalsfallet, Linndalsfallet as well as Lindalsfossen) was the last of the three waterfalls that I saw from the Jenstad Farm. Nestled below the…

Mardalsfossen

Mardalsfossen was a waterfall that certainly impressed Julie and I, and we tended to think of it in much the same way that we think of Yosemite Falls. With Norway winning the Nature lottery with…

The Eikesdal Valley Waterfalls and the Aursjovegen Waterfalls

It seemed to Julie and I that a very underappreciated part of Eikesdalen Valley was further up the valley from the famous Mardalsfossen. This was where we found a plethora of big but unnamed…

Strandfossen

Strandfossen was a tall waterfall that we noticed during our excursion into Eikesdalen Valley to see Mardalsfossen. It was a conspicuous presence as it was facing the Eresfjord at the mouth…

Naustafossen

Naustafossen (or Nauståfossen; I think is pronounced “NAUS-toh-foss-un”) was our reward for doing a rather long, out-of-the-way detour towards the Trollheimen Mountains of the Surnadal Municipality…

Vinnufossen and the Sunndal Waterfalls

Vinnufossen was a waterfall that we had never identified even though we had seen and photographed it as part of our late evening drive through the Sunndal Valley on our first trip to Norway in…

Dontefossen, Gravdefossen, Brurasloret, and “Skogagrovafossen”

Donetfossen (or Døntefossen), Skogagrovafossen, and Gravdefossen were a waterfall foursome in close proximity to each other within the Romsdal Valley (Romsdalen). While it wasn’t easy to single out…

Vermafossen

Vermafossen was one of our favorite of the waterfalls that we encountered while driving through the valley Romsdalen during our first visit to Norway in 2005. That was no small feat considering…

Slettafossen

Slettafossen was one of the more known waterfalls within the famed Romsdal Valley (Romsdalen) though it puzzled both Julie and I.There was a well-signed and relatively big car park and picnic…
