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.

  • We'd highly recommend the short drive to Voringfossen from Eidfjord and viewing the waterfalls from the Hotel Fossil. The most breathtaking and scary waterfall we've seen. Go early to avoid a complete...  more »
  • Multiple waterfalls in a gorge type setting- beautiful! Try to go early or late to avoid the bus loads of tourists.  more »
  • It is without a doubt worth visiting them. In addition to being beautiful, way to go to reach it is full of towns with charm, water and forests. There are hiking trails and a few vantage points from which to appreciate them. There is also a cafe in the area for those who want to make a stop to recharge.

  • This massive waterfall outside of Eidfjord is not only stunning up close, but even from a considerable distance. From the viewpoint up above the fall, the true magnitude of the massive fall can be appreciated. Even way up above the falls, the power of the water is felt with mist spraying up. This incredibly long fall is one of the most viewed tourist destinations in Norway and is powered by all of the ice melting from the mountains above the fjords.
  • It's fine. You can either get a view of it from the top or hike to it from the bottom. The hike is a half hour each way (hour roundtrip). I went in mid October and all the leaves had already fallen and everything just looked kinda dead. I'm sure visiting another time of year is more breathtaking.
  • Beautiful expansive views from the roadside or at Fossli Hotel. We happened upon this during vacation in early July. Did not stay at the Fossli hotel but parking there is free as well as access to walk out to the viewing areas. Had I known more about this spot, I would have opted to stay in the hotel a night or two.
  • Must-see in Norway. Best viewed from viewing platforms in front of Fossli Hotel. Stay a night at the hotel so you can have best views both at twilight and also in daylight the next morning.
  • Really nice waterfall. We saw it first from down the mountain and later from the viewpoint from above. The are still busy with make this viewpoint even better
