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

Kvernhusfossen and Geitaskardet

Both Kvernhusfossen and Geitaskardet were attractive waterfalls on opposite sides of the valley of Modalen (the Health Valley?) and the town of Mo (pronounced “MOO”). The town was situated right…

The Husedalen Waterfalls

Husedalen Waterfalls were a series of four giant waterfalls on the Kinso River making a mad dash down from the Hardanger Plateau (Hardangervidda) to the South Fjord (Sørfjorden). The cumulative…

Voringsfossen

Voringsfossen (Vøringsfossen; I think is pronounced “VEWH-rings-foss-un”) was definitely one of the waterfall highlights of our visit to the Eidfjord Municipality. The falls dazzled us with what…

Skykkjedalsfossen

Skykkjedalsfossen (I think it’s pronounced “SKIK-sheh-dahls-foss-un”) was an impressive plunging waterfall deep in the narrow Simadal Valley (Simadalen). Prior to our visit to this falls, Julie…

Vedalsfossen and the Hjolmodalen Waterfalls

Vedalsfossen was actually one of many roadside waterfalls that we encountered while driving on the narrow and steep road through the Hjølmo Valley (Hjølmodalen; [pronounced “YEUWHL-moo-dal-un”])…

Valursfossen

Valursfossen certainly had to be one of the most memorable hikes Julie and I had ever done. This wild and powerful waterfall on the Velg River was said to be 262m tall but I also saw a more…

“Storfossen”

“Storfossen” was an informal name we chose to associate with this rather obscure, wispy yet attratively tall waterfall in the moors of Suldal (near the lake Mosvatnet, which I think is pronounced

Hongavikfossen

Hongavikfossen was a roadside waterfall spilling from high up the western cliffs flanking the Saudafjord before tumbling besides a tunnel (Hongavikfossentunnelen) then ultimately feeding the fjord…

Svandalsfossen

Svandalsfossen caught our attention as it noticeably tumbled right besides the Rv520, which was close enough to send its spray right onto the road. The pullout on the north side of the bridge…

Sauda to Roldal Waterfalls

The Sauda to Røldal Waterfalls page is where I’m paying homage to the numerous waterfalls we encountered as we drove along this stretch of the Rv520 mostly through moorish highlands between…

Espelandsfossen

Espelandsfossen was the first of a handful of major waterfalls that we encountered in Oddadalen (Odda Valley). So it wasn’t surprising to us that this valley was also known as the Valley of…

Latefossen

Latefossen was probably the most popular and dramatic of the waterfalls in Oddadalen (the Odda Valley). Although we thought almost all of the waterfalls we encountered in Oddadalen were spectacular…

Vidfoss

Vidfoss was the third waterfall we saw within Oddadalen (the Odda Valley) as we were heading north towards the town of Odda. It was an attractively wide yet tall waterfall (allegedly 300m in…

Strondsfossen

Strondsfossen was the fourth waterfall we encountered while driving through Oddadalen north towards Odda. With so many huge waterfalls here, any wonder why they call the Odda Valley the “Valley of…

Tjornadalsfossen

Tjornadalsfossen (Tjørnadalsfossen; pronounced “TYURD-nuh-dahls-foss-un”) was a waterfall that we almost missed out on for we weren’t really aware of its presence. Indeed, it took an accidental…

Furebergsfossen

Furebergsfossen (I’ve also seen it spelled Furubergsfossen) was a waterfall that presented us quite the challenge to experience despite it being a roadside waterfall. The problem was that…

AEdnafossen and the Folgefonna Waterfalls

AEdnafossen (Ædnafossen [maybe pronounced “ED-nuh-foss-un” and alternatively spelled Ednafossen]) was probably the most scenic of the many waterfalls we noticed while driving alongside Sørfjorden…
