The Romsdal Valley Waterfalls

The Romsdalen Waterfalls page is where I’m clumping the various roadside or nearly roadside waterfalls that we encountered in the famed Romsdal Valley (Romsdalen). While we do have separate…

The Seven Sisters and the Geirangerfjorden Waterfalls

Vesleulfossen (Vestlufossen)

Vesleulfossen was said to be Rondane National Park’s tallest waterfall at a reported 180m. It was probably for that reason alone that we made the detour out to this part of Central Norway from the…

Pollfoss and the Waterfalls along the Otta River

The Waterfalls along the Otta River was really my attempt at trying to devote a page to the many waterfalls we saw as we drove the Rv15 along the Otta River towards the town of Otta in Oppland…

Eidsfossen

Eidsfossen was a powerful waterfall on the aptly-named Storelva (Big River) that literally made us feel like the ground beneath our feet was trembling. Indeed, the operative word with this falls…

“Heggheimsfossen” (“Stigen”)

“Heggheimsfossen” was a waterfall that only recently was I able to correctly identify its watercourse. During our June/July 2005 trip to Norway, Julie and I definitely noticed this obviously…

Strupenfossen and “Nonfossen”

Strupenfossen (or just Strupen) was a waterfall that seemed to have a bit of a reputation for being one of the tallest waterfalls in Norway. Julie and I had doubts about this stature considering…

Ramnefjellsfossen

Ramnefjellsfossen was a very tall waterfall spilling into the beautiful but deceptively calm and dangerous lake Lovatnet (pronounced “LOO-vaht-nuh”; meaning “the napping or laughing lake”?).

Volefossen and the Oldedalen Waterfalls

Laukelandsfossen and Osfossen

Laukelandsfossen was a waterfall that Julie and I thought had a scenic allure rivaling the more famous Huldrefossen as the Sunnfjord region’s prettiest waterfall. What this waterfall had going for…
