  • Of what a gorgeous waterfall! It's a beautiful sight. This fall is located in Eidfjord and is over 180 meters tall. There's is a cafe cum gift shop nearby with a wonderful viewing platform that extends over the hillside to provide dizzying good views. Standing in the platform it almost feels like you are standing on top of the falls. It's a wonderful view. Recommend a visit!
  • As it is still cold, volume of water in falls is not at its best. Nonetheless, panoramic view is beautiful.
