The South Norway Waterfalls are found in a region that is considered to be some of the sunniest parts of the country. While this is great news for folks who love touring its charming coastal towns and cities (especially, Kristiansand and Oslo, the country's capital), this meant that we had to search a little harder and drive a bit farther to find such waterfalls. Nonetheless, they provided excuses for us to experience some of the country's more hidden charms such as the traditional Setesdal Valley, the cradle of tourism in Rjukan, even a stave church at Heddal.

For the purposes of this website, South Norway encompasses the counties of Telemark, Aust-Agder, and Vest-Agder as they happened to be the counties in which we've seen waterfalls so far. Among the waterfall highlights were the Reiårsfossen and Teinefossen. Although our initial visit here in June 2005 was largely for the purposes of waterfalling, Julie and I have learned to diversify our experiences, and we feel like we need to come back here on a future visit to the country and explore more of this sunny side of Norway.
