  • If you're in Geiranger it is certainly nice to snag this route to the waterfall. The route is not very interesting. You follow actually 2 km long a kind of grand staircase to the top. You are constantly on the rise and along the way have you got some nice views and every now and then some sheep, but there is not much variation in the route itself. Arrived at the storseterfossen you could with a ladder down to behind the waterfall. Not something you are going through every day and so fun to do! In addition, you had also a beautiful view from above and it wasn't very busy which is also very fine! The route take approximately 45 minutes to complete and is definitely worth it to pick up for a new experience! In addition, you have also the possibility a second route to run from the waterfall. This is the route to the top of the Laushornet! This is really very heavy and very style (to top do you have about 3 hours), but then you have the most beautiful view of the Geiranger Fjord. So do you want extra challenge, change to this route (about this route is not a lot of information to find).

  • Nice easy hike to this not famous waterfall, small but really scenografic. The parking is just in front of a nice restaurant.  more »

  • This is a truly spectacular place to visit. You are surrounded by mountains and can hike down to and behind a fairly large waterfall. If you are hiking from town, come prepared! It is quite the climb.
  • Fabulous walk and awesome waterfall. We left a tasty geocache for friends but they won't be able to get there. Consequently it's available to the first person to get it. Once above the waterfall, look below the info board on the track down behind the waterfall. Two small stones hide the treasure. Enjoy!
  • Great hiking route which ends behind a lovely waterfall!
  • Stumbled upon on an indication ... intrigued, we started to climb ... was a walk not simple, made of uphill sections not indifferent but for the most part there were rocks by way of scale that made it look good ... The surrounding landscape is stunning, the fjord in the background behind and the uncertainty of this waterfall in front of ... Arrived on a balcony, got some people coming down and we walked. A narrow passage would take us behind the waterfall ... Impossible to describe the emotion and the feeling of helplessness and smallness ... remains enchanted there and don't understand where you are ... Forget the fatigue and you get lost and enjoy this paradise. Unexpected hike, remains in the heart as one of the most beautiful to do nela small Geirager.

  • Pretty waterfall, possibility to go below. In the rain, the path can be quite slippery in places. You can also come across very ready, friendly sheep...
