Laegdafossen and the Naeroyfjorden and Aurlandsfjorden Waterfalls

Laegdafossen (or more accurately Lægdafossen) was perhaps the most compelling waterfall that we encountered while doing the cruise between Flåm and Gudvangen. The falls had a cumulative drop of 580…

Bordalsgjelet

Bordalsgjelet (the “Bordal Gorge”; pronounced “BOR-dahls-yell-uh”) was what I consider to be kind of as close to an inside-the-gorge experience as I got in Norway. Typically, we explored such…

Sjurhaugfossen

Sjurhaugfossen was a roadside waterfall flowing on the Lærdalselvi River nestled deep in a gorge. According to the Norgeskart map, the falls could be as little as 5m tall or if you count…

Sognefjell Waterfalls

The Sognefjell Waterfalls page is my waterfalling excuse to talk about the popular Sognefjellet National Tourist Route (Sognefjellsvegen) that cut right through the heart of Jotunheimen…

Drivandefossen

Drivandefossen (also called Krekafossen on Norgeskart) was one of those overlooked waterfalls that we happened to miss when we first stayed in Skjolden back on our first trip to Norway in 2005…

Boyabreen Waterfalls

The Boyabreen Waterfalls (more accurately called Bøyabreen) was my way of paying homage to the collection of waterfalls we saw around the popular Bøyabreen Glacier. Of all the glaciers where we…

Ovstefossen (Ovstebrufossen)

Ovstefossen (more accurately Øvstefossen; I’ve also seen it called Ovstebrufossen or Øvstebrufossen) was yet another one of the accidental unplanned roadside waterfalls that we ended up stopping…

Krunefossen and the Kjenndalen Waterfalls

Krunefossen was a gushing waterfall at the terminus of the Krunebreen arm of the vast Jostedalsbreen Glacier. According to my Norgeskart measurements, the entire waterfall lost about 480m in…

Eafossen (Hyttfossen)

Eafossen (also known as Hyttfossen) was kind of our waterfalling excuse to talk about the UNESCO World Heritage area of Røros. We actually didn’t realize that this waterfall existed until we…

“Approved By Nature” (Fjord Norway and Southern Norway – July 15, 2019 to July 25, 2019)

Going down seemed to be every bit as treacherous as going up was hot and tiring. I really had to watch my step as I was going down, and my knees were feeling the aches and pains of receiving…

Njupeskar

The Njupeskar Waterfall (or just Njupeskär) was a protected waterfall in Fulufjället National Park in western Sweden. There was a lot of fanfare concerning this waterfall because it had been…

Handolsforsen

Handolsforsen (or more accurately Handölsforsen) was another one of the three major waterfalls that we visited between Östersund and the Swedish border en route to Trondheim, Norway. The other two…

Tannforsen

Tannforsen (or more accurately Tännforsen) was quite possibly our favorite waterfall in Sweden. Squeezed between two big lakes (Tännsjön and Våmviken), the outflow of Tännsjön runs on Åreälven and…

Ristafallet

Ristafallet was the first of three significant waterfalls in a stretch of the drive along the E14 between Östersund and the Swedish border and ultimately to Trondheim. The falls featured a wide…

Fettjeafallet

Fettjeafallet (or more accurately Fettjeåfallet) was one of the taller waterfalls that was said to have a drop of 70m over two main drops on the Fettjeån river. With this excursion, it was pretty…

Hallingsafallet

Hallingsafallet (or more accurately Hällingsåfallet) was a spectacularly gushing waterfall where the Hällingsån dropped 43m right into the head of a deep canyon. After having seen some modest…

Linafallet

Linafallet (also called Linfallet) was kind of a case of mistaken identity for me. You see, there happened to be a different waterfall of the same name that promised to have a lot of volume as well…

Revelforsen

Revelforsen was a waterfall that I once dubbed the “Mo i Rana Waterfall” because I had no idea that it even had a name. The distinguishing feature of this waterfall was the interesting flume…

Kystriksveien Waterfalls

The Kystriksveien Waterfalls were kind of my waterfalling excuse to talk about the beautiful coastal drive along the county road Fv17, which is also known as the Kystriksveien. It’s hard to convey…

Kobbelvfossen

Kobbelvfossen was about as accidental of a waterfall visit as they come, especially since we never even knew this waterfall existed. That all changed while making the long drive between…
