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…

Starefossen

Starefossen could very well be the closest named waterfall to the city center of Bergen. You’d think that with such fortunate positioning that this waterfall ought to get more notoriety…

Ringedalsfossen and the Trolltunga Waterfalls

Ringedalsfossen (also known as Skjeggedalsfossen) was definitely the most conspicuous waterfall in the Skjeggedal Valley, and it acted as my waterfalling excuse to go on the epic hike to Trolltunga.

Sagfossen and the Rullestad Waterfalls

Sagfossen was a conspicuous waterfall that we spotted while driving the E134 between Skarre and the nearby Langfossen Waterfall. Back when Julie and I first noticed this waterfall, we didn’t…

Siseljafossen

Siseljafossen was a waterfall that tested my determination for visiting it. What I remembered most about this excursion (besides heavy rain during my visit) was how obscure and tricky it was…

Tvindefossen

Tvindefossen (I’ve also seen it spelled Tvinnefossen) was a gorgeous 152m waterfall tumbling in strands with a graceful character that strangely contrasted the gushing waterfalls we had been used…

Stalheimsfossen and Sivlefossen

Stalheimsfossen and Sivlefossen were two giant waterfalls tumbling on opposite sides of the serpentine road known as Stalheimskleiva. In addition to the waterfalls, there was a lot of scenery…

Kyrfossen

Kyrfossen was one of those waterfalls that Julie and I accidentally stumbled upon when we decided to drive to Osafjorden and the town of Osa on a whim. I didn’t recall exactly what compelled us to…

Skarvefossen

Skarvefossen was a waterfall that we happened to have noticed on our way to Skjervsfossen, but we never realized that it had this name until we did some post-trip research of what we experienced…

Espelandsfossen

Espelandsfossen was one of two waterfalls that we visited frp, the same county of Hordaland that also happened to share the same name. As if that wasn’t confusing enough, this waterfall also seemed…

Skjervsfossen

Skjervsfossen (I think is pronounced “SHERVS-foss-un”) was a large waterfall of about 150m in cumulative drop over its two main sections. The upper tier was a steep twin drop said to be about 70m…

Steinsdalsfossen

Steinsdalsfossen was a waterfall that seemed to have a lot of fanfare and notoriety (at least that was our impression when we were researching for our trip). When we visited the falls in June 2005…

Fossen Bratte

Fossen Bratte (pronounced “BRAH-tuh” meaning “steep”) was a pretty waterfall that we targeted on a visit to Steinsdalsfossen and the charming city of Bergen (since it sat in between them). I tend…

Hesjedalsfossen

Hesjedalsfossen (I think is pronounced “HEH-sheh-dahls-foss-un”) was a dual waterfall that we managed to notice just before we were about to enter a tunnel. It was a good thing we noticed it…

Stigfossen and Fjellfossen

The waterfall tandem of Stigfossen and Fjellfossen sat at the back of the communities of Myster and Eidslandet. According to the old Norgesglasset, Stigfossen was the lower waterfall while Fjellfossen

Kvernhusfossen and Geitaskardet

Both Kvernhusfossen and Geitaskardet were attractive waterfalls on opposite sides of the valley of Modalen (the Health Valley?) and the town of Mo (pronounced “MOO”). The town was situated right…

Voringsfossen

Voringsfossen (Vøringsfossen; I think is pronounced “VEWH-rings-foss-un”) was definitely one of the waterfall highlights of our visit to the Eidfjord Municipality. The falls dazzled us with what…

Vedalsfossen and the Hjolmodalen Waterfalls

Vedalsfossen was actually one of many roadside waterfalls that we encountered while driving on the narrow and steep road through the Hjølmo Valley (Hjølmodalen; [pronounced “YEUWHL-moo-dal-un”])…

Valursfossen

Valursfossen certainly had to be one of the most memorable hikes Julie and I had ever done. This wild and powerful waterfall on the Velg River was said to be 262m tall but I also saw a more…

The Husedalen Waterfalls

Husedalen Waterfalls were a series of four giant waterfalls on the Kinso River making a mad dash down from the Hardanger Plateau (Hardangervidda) to the South Fjord (Sørfjorden). The cumulative…
