When we visited this waterfall we hiked up to a certain point where we had a magnificent view of the Åkrafjord. The hike started right next to the waterfall (on the left side, just after you cross the road from the car parking you should...More

....Latefossen, which is about 30 minutes away, toward Odda. I had seen this waterfall on a YouTube video and was really excited to see it; but after seeing Latefossen, this was just ok. It’s a longer waterfall, for sure, but lacks the intensity. Nice quick...More

You don't have to go on the hike to take in the immenseness that is Langfoss. So you can do it the "American way" and just drive there, and walk to the waterfall. This will not give you as astonishing view of the fjords, but...More

Totally stunning waterfall. Small car park with kiosk and bathroom facilities across the road. Breathtaking

This watterfall belongs to one of the biggest I've ever seen. Its length and strength is so powerful. It can be seen directly from the road, no need to hike anywhere.

Norway has waterfalls everywhere. It was a standing joke in our car, "Look there's a waterfall." On our way from Haugesund to see the stave church in Roldal someone in the car said, "Look, there's a waterfall." This time we were awestruck. Had we known...More
