The Rogaland Waterfalls encompass the southernmost of the world famous Western Fjords of Norway. Julie and I toured an appreciable chunk of this region along the winding and narrow roads that skirt the many fjords and mountainous moors that comprise much of this region. Even though we covered a lot of real estate, it was done over just a few days so we feel like we're due for a return visit to slow things down a bit and visit some of the more signature attractions that characterize Rogaland County.

Among these signature attractions that we missed out on was the Preikestolen (the Pulpit) with its flat plateau that would suddenly drop into the Lysefjord (fjord of light) as well as Kjeragbolten where a rock that you could stand on was wedged between two narrow cliffs dropping over a thousand feet below! We also didn't stay in the town of Stavanger, which was the main town of the county.

That said, most of our touring occurred in a section of the county known as Ryfylke, which featured not only the aforementioned attractions above but also numerous waterfalls. There was a particularly memorable stretch where there were many roadside waterfalls such as Hongavikfossen as well as a plethora of them between the towns of Sauda to Røldal. However, our favorite waterfall of Rogaland County was by far the incredibly beautiful Månafossen, whose thundering flow generated a bold and bright rainbow in its mist during our visit.

So have a look at our humble sampling of the county's waterfalls that we managed to visit. We're definitely keen to add to this survey!
