Northern Norway Waterfalls
The Northern Norway Waterfalls cover the thin stretch of Norway north of the Artic Circle sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Finland, and Russia. As you can see from the waterfall map shown above, we cover a lot of real-estate as the waterfalls were spread out here.
For the purposes of this page, we incorporate the waterfalls found in the Norwegian counties of Nordland, Troms, and Finnmark.
Just to give you an idea of the vast distances involved here, it can easily take the whole day just to drive from Alta to Narvik (and this doesn’t even reach the county of Nordland since Narvik remains in Troms County)!
Nevertheless, this arctic region of Norway incorporates many different cultures, especially the native Sami population. We also see evidence of such multi-cultural influences in the place names from Sami names (with suffixes of -vuotna or -johka) in the far north of Norway to even Swedish names (with suffixes of -fors or -fall instead of -foss) further to the south of Northern Norway.
In any case, browse around this page and see if you can take on the challenge of fitting in the superb natural attractions here through the waterfalls with so much ground to cover!
