  • We visited the langfoss waterfall in March, before the snow melt has inserted correctly. You could see the size, but only hint at the force of water from so much height. In the summer and beautiful that is definitely gorgeous! The åkra fjord is beautiful.

  • An experience that you must experience when we vacation in Norway. The look of the fjord along in fine weather, if reflected in the mountains in the water is wonderful. Then, the roaring waterfall, this force of nature is huge and always nice. The kiosk offers also souvenirs such as OST (cheese) and elk sausage in addition to coffee and delicious waffles. Nice service included

  • Norway has waterfalls everywhere. It was a standing joke in our car, "Look there's a waterfall." On our way from Haugesund to see the stave church in Roldal someone in the car said, "Look, there's a w...  more »

  • If you havent seen a waterfall this must be the most amazing thing in your life. But for others this seems to be just one of many. Its directly at a highly frequented highway and. You just have to walk like 2minutes to stay on the road in front of the waterfall. I prefer abandoned places without cars and trucks to enjoy such things. So its okay especially if its on your way to somwhereelse. But not as special as Vettisfossen.
  • This was the first large waterfall that we visited during our vacation in Norway. Spectacular to see! Very high! There was a slight breeze causing a lot of water kicking up. Delicious refreshing! At the parking lot there is a toilet facility. Also there is a small souvenir shop present. You may cross the road by the tunnel underneath a bridge/road. Safe crossing. With which you come in front of the waterfall and you can take better pictures. Also there is a sign which markes the start of a hike. We didn't hike here so can't give feedback on that. But most of all the view is amazing!!!
  • Driving along the Åkrafjorden it is impossible to miss Langfoss. The road brings you just next to the Langfoss where a (mostly crowded) parking is situated. The Langfoss in the river Tjørna is one of the larger waterfall in Norway with total drop of 612 meters and a significant volume. The Langfoss is a beautiful waterfall and easy to access. From the parking you will have a great view. It is possible to walk to the waterfront or closer to the waterfall. For hikers, there is path leading to the top of the Langfoss with a marvelous view on the Åkrafjorden. If you are not in a hurry you also can take a boattrip over the Åkrafjorden. A scaffold is right in front of the Langfoss but I think you have to book the boat in Etne.
  • One of the most spectacular waterfalls in my country! This spectacular waterfall is the fifth highest waterfall in Norway (612meters - 2008 feet high and 205 feet wide) . CNN named in 2011 Langfoss to one of the world’s 10 most beautiful waterfall. The mountainside in the background turns bright green with new vegetation in the summer, providing a striking contrast to the whitewater of the falls and the charcoal-gray rocky outcroppings. If you have 3 hours to spend here I will highly recommend the hiking trail to the top of the waterfall. See my attached photos and you will understand why! The tour starts just east of Langfoss. On the right side of her mother mound opposite the picnic area is a path. This is followed up in the woods. The trail is clearly and mostly easy to follow. The tour runs steadily and evenly upward in forested terrain, with a sharp rise. The highlight is after 1½ hour walk crossing the rock of the hill end of Langfossen. Here are the views just amazing! You look down the road where the tour started, and you look out over the bay. Furthermore you see the Folgefonna glacier in the background. You need to bring with water and food and calculate 3 hours. Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway
  • My relatives have a farm at Eljarvik which has the most beautiful view of the falls. Many of the pictures of the falls that I have seen have been taken from this site. It is a truly Majestic sight and one that should not be missed.
