  • The fall of the water occurs about 1000 feet above the river; the rocks on either side rise perpendicularly: the spectacle is impressive. This waterfall is 150 km from Bergen, from where you can hire an excursion. The buss have their parking and to see the place you reach a hotel, the Fossli, which has access to viewpoints where you can see this natural beauty. The place also has walkways and observation platforms, which are expanding, where you can have a panoramic view.

  • We went as part of a group tour starting out in Eidfjord. The waterfalls are amazing. Very nice walkways and viewing platforms. Safe to get to the edge and get incredible views.  more »
  • You have to be there! From beautiful views until you feel dizzy. The weather is not important on condition, but definitely better when it rains heavily ... We recommend it!
  • Great waterfall. If you want to visit the base of the waterfall, be sure to consider at least 1:30 hour for the whole trip. Hiking footwear needed: The path is considered hard. If you're in a hurry, you can view it from above as well, although the view isn't as nice as below
