Mordolefossen

Mordolefossen (or more accurately Mordølefossen) was a waterfall that Julie and I nearly confused with the more conspicuous Feigefossen nearby as they seemed to have a somewhat uncanny resemblance…

Feigefossen

Feigefossen was a waterfall that Julie and I anticipated visiting because we learned from our pre-trip research (later supported by a sign we saw a the trailhead there) that it was said to possess…

Geisfossen, Ryefossen, and the Jostedalen Waterfalls

Geisfossen (I’ve also seen it called Geisdalsfossen) was a series of four segmented waterfalls plunging side-by-side each other. It seemed like it was the most famous of the many waterfalls…

“Nearly Without A Place To Stay” (South Central Norway – June 27, 2005 to July 1, 2005)

Just then, a police car with a pair of officers pulled up from behind us and had its high beams flashed onto us. Clearly, they must’ve thought we were up to no good…

Siseljafossen

Siseljafossen was a waterfall that tested my determination for visiting it. What I remembered most about this excursion (besides heavy rain during my visit) was how obscure and tricky it was…

Tvindefossen

Tvindefossen (I’ve also seen it spelled Tvinnefossen) was a gorgeous 152m waterfall tumbling in strands with a graceful character that strangely contrasted the gushing waterfalls we had been used…

Stalheimsfossen and Sivlefossen

Stalheimsfossen and Sivlefossen were two giant waterfalls tumbling on opposite sides of the serpentine road known as Stalheimskleiva. In addition to the waterfalls, there was a lot of scenery…

Kjelfossen

Kjelfossen (I believe its pronounced like “SHELL-foss-un”) was considered to be one of the tallest waterfalls in Norway, which was something that was impressed upon us during our pre-trip research…

Kjosfossen, Rjoandefossen, and the Flam Railway Waterfalls

Kjosfossen was perhaps the main highlight of our Flam Railway (Flåmsbana) experience. Not only did we think it was the most compelling sight, but we felt it was hands down the headline attraction…

Stodnafossen

Stodnafossen (Stødnafossen; I think is pronounced “STUED-nuh-foss-un”) was a waterfall that Julie and I didn’t anticipate seeing going into our first trip to Norway in June 2005. We only spotted…

Rjukandefossen

Rjukandefossen was a powerful double-waterfall that we decided to pursue after noticing it on a free brochure while at a visitor center in Flåm. We definitely didn’t expect to see it going…

Hydnefossen

Hydnefossen was our waterfalling excuse to explore a little bit of the famed Hemsedal area during our June 2005 trip to Norway. The claim to fame of Hemsedal was that it was a major Winter ski…

Kyrfossen

Kyrfossen was one of those waterfalls that Julie and I accidentally stumbled upon when we decided to drive to Osafjorden and the town of Osa on a whim. I didn’t recall exactly what compelled us to…

Skarvefossen

Skarvefossen was a waterfall that we happened to have noticed on our way to Skjervsfossen, but we never realized that it had this name until we did some post-trip research of what we experienced…

Espelandsfossen

Espelandsfossen was one of two waterfalls that we visited frp, the same county of Hordaland that also happened to share the same name. As if that wasn’t confusing enough, this waterfall also seemed…

Skjervsfossen

Skjervsfossen (I think is pronounced “SHERVS-foss-un”) was a large waterfall of about 150m in cumulative drop over its two main sections. The upper tier was a steep twin drop said to be about 70m…

Steinsdalsfossen

Steinsdalsfossen was a waterfall that seemed to have a lot of fanfare and notoriety (at least that was our impression when we were researching for our trip). When we visited the falls in June 2005…

Fossen Bratte

Fossen Bratte (pronounced “BRAH-tuh” meaning “steep”) was a pretty waterfall that we targeted on a visit to Steinsdalsfossen and the charming city of Bergen (since it sat in between them). I tend…

Hesjedalsfossen

Hesjedalsfossen (I think is pronounced “HEH-sheh-dahls-foss-un”) was a dual waterfall that we managed to notice just before we were about to enter a tunnel. It was a good thing we noticed it…

Stigfossen and Fjellfossen

The waterfall tandem of Stigfossen and Fjellfossen sat at the back of the communities of Myster and Eidslandet. According to the old Norgesglasset, Stigfossen was the lower waterfall while Fjellfossen
