Forsakar

The Forsakar Waterfall was the southernmost of the waterfalls that we encountered in Sweden, which alone kind of made it stand out to us as we didn’t expect any waterfalls this far south in the…

Danska Fall

Danska Fall (I’ve also seen it called Danska Fallen and Danska Fallet) turned out to be the last waterfall we visited on our epic 2019 Scandinavian Trip. It turned out to sit in one of Halland…

Gloppefossen

Gloppefossen was one of the highest permanent waterfalls (Reiårsfossen could be taller) in the Setesdal Valley with a cumulative drop of around 120m (or up to 140m if I include some of the cascades…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
