If you want an easy to get to and breathtaking waterfall, this is it. Keep in mind, due to that fact, there are many buses and people all over. But it is still worth stopping. Quaint buildings along the river make it very picturesque. What...More

We stopped at 3 waterfalls while driving from Bergen to Flam, and this was by far the busiest, probably because it’s right off of a main road and a lot of tour buses stop here. It’s definitely worth the stop, though. It’s a beautiful and...More

I went here around 8am and luckily no one was around! Saw some sheep on the way up and the short walk still has great views. Highly recommend a quick stop here. Also has washrooms and lots of parking!

Definitely worth a visit if exploring the Hardangerfiord. There is a climb up to the waterfall from the car park and there are very good photo opportunities at the waterfall. It is possible to access the back of the waterfall during the visit.

Steindalsfossen is 46 metres high and from the parking lot there is a path that leads you up to the waterfall and where you can walk dry behind the massive water. Watch out for the "wild" sheep.

90min away from Bergen and 5min from Norheimsund, this is a very beautiful little waterfall, which can get very strong after rain. The highlight of this waterfall is not its hight or form, its that you can go behind it, touch it. This walk was...More
