It was especially forceful the day that I visited. A weatherproof jacket would be a good idea because I times I almost couldn't even see the falls from how much mist was coming up.

On your way between Odda and Røldal you'll pass this waterfall. It falls right next to the road, so it's easy to experience it. Just stop at the parking lot next to it:)
