Voringsfossen, Eidfjord Municipality

4.5
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Eidfjord Municipality
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.

    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.

    A stunning bucket list destination. Early summer waterfalls are swollen with snowmelt. Sheer walls with 1,000 foot waterfalls create an immense sight. Dress warm and be prepared with rain gear. If it's foggy, wait a few minutes.

    Superb waterfalls, and not commercialised - would recommend going up to the hotel for a different view. The viewpoints are still under construction (June 2017), but some are open and well worth it to see both waterfalls clearly.

    Breathtaking impression of the force of nature. You´ll get the very best view from the new platform at Fossli Hotel.

    Beautiful, but hold on to your kids, it's a long drop from the unprotected edge at the rest stop.
