4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
At Voringsfossen, one of Norway's best-known waterfalls, view rushing water tumbling from a height of 182 m (597 ft). Find a spot to pull off Highway 7, the road that connects Oslo with Bergen, and follow the path that leads to the base of the waterfall. For a view from above, park outside the Fosslie Hotel (for a fee) and walk to the vantage point as you observe the deep canyon and forested mountains that surround the falls. You'll find multiple areas for hiking and picnicking nearby. Work out when and for how long to visit Voringsfossen and other Eidfjord attractions using our handy Eidfjord travel itinerary maker.

  • Beautiful nature, free access, nice view of the waterfall. The area will be made more accessible for tourists in the future!
  • Amazing view of the magnificent waterfall! The drive up itself was well worth the trip.
