Waisila Falls

Waisila Falls is a small 15m waterfall deep accessed by a 750m walk in the Colo-i-Suva Forest Park on the northern outskirts of the capital city of Suva.

“High Tide? Or Low Tide?” (Namosi Highlands, Fiji – December 27, 2005)

For some reason, I kept thinking about dirty dishes when I laid my eyes on the liquid before me. But my sense of curiosity was every bit as strong as strong as well. Besides, everyone was looking…

Wainuta Falls

Wainuta Falls is a gorgeous 30m waterfall in the Luva Gorge beneath the Namosi Highlands. We experienced this waterfall as part of an all-day Rivers Fiji Tour.

Other Luva Waterfalls

There are other Luva Waterfalls that you can see while touring the Luva Gorge in a Rivers Fiji excursion. Most of the falls photographed here were taken when we cruised the Navua River…

“A Boxing Day Adventure” (Abaca, Fiji – December 26, 2005)

As we started to leave the base of the Savu-i-One Waterfall, Julie started to notice that her left arm was starting to feel numb. We weren’t quite sure what had happened…

Savu-i-one Waterfall

The Savu-i-One Waterfall is the feature waterfall attraction of the remote Koroyanitu National Park in northern Viti Levu. To even get to the reserve, you’ll need to arrange…

Vereni Falls

Vereni Falls is a tall waterfall downstream from the Savu-i-One Waterfall in Koroyanitu National Park near Abaca Village, but it’s hard to get a good look.

The Norwegian Language

One of the things that I learned when Julie and I turned our attention internationally to go waterfalling is that travel is all about building bridges between your own perception of the world and what actually happens in the real world…

Norway Highlights

Even though this is a waterfalls website, we recognize that there are many highlights from the island country of Iceland (both involving and not involving waterfalls). So we’ve come up with this page to pay homage to some of the highlights that we…

Norway Waterfalling Binge Itinerary – June 20, 2005 to July 9, 2005

This itinerary summarizes our trip in Norway, which was sort of a follow-up trip hot on the heels of our real eye-opener in New Zealand. This was one trip where I really wished we had more time because this was an extremely waterfall-centric trip…


Rovijokfossen is a 28m waterfall in Skibotndal Valley between Skibotn and the Finland border in Troms County, Norway. Its base is accessed on a short trail.


Malselvfossen (Målselvfossen) is a 22m high, 650m long wide river waterfall in an area known for salmon fishing in Troms County, Norway near Bardufoss.


Mollisfossen is a 269m waterfall in Reisa National Park that we accessed by a traditional riverboat. It maybe our favorite waterfall above the Arctic Circle.


Fosselvfossen is a 64m free-leaping waterfall high above the Straumfjord near Storslett accessed by a steep 2km marked path into sheep grazing pastures.

The Lyngen Alps Waterfalls and the Kafjord Waterfalls

The Kafjorden Waterfalls page (Kåfjorden in Norwegian or Gáivuotna in Sami) is where I’m attributing the waterfalls we’ve seen while 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 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 is a powerful river waterfall dropping 34m on the Sanddøla River, which had been known as a salmon fishing river in Trøndelag County, Norway.


Grongstadfossen is a 75m waterfall, which is the tallest and largest waterfall experienced by an overlook in the Høylandet municipality near Grong, Norway.


Laksforsen is a 16m waterfall on the Vefsna River. It was the best salmon fishing spot, and it had a cultural mix of Sami, Swedish, and Norwegian influences.
