Laegdafossen and the Naeroyfjorden and Aurlandsfjorden Waterfalls

Strupenfossen and “Nonfossen”

Strupenfossen (or just Strupen) was a waterfall that seemed to have a bit of a reputation for being one of the tallest waterfalls in Norway. Julie and I had doubts about this stature considering…

Ramnefjellsfossen

Ramnefjellsfossen was a very tall waterfall spilling into the beautiful but deceptively calm and dangerous lake Lovatnet (pronounced “LOO-vaht-nuh”; meaning “the napping or laughing lake”?).

Hoysteinfossen, Huldrefossen, and the Bodalen Waterfalls
