  • This is a nice waterfall, the size is very impressive. A nice place to stop for a photo and get a break from driving. 
  • We called here on a coach trip from Flam. Close to the road and a short walk from the car park the falls descent in a series of cascades. Well worth visiting if you are in this area of Norway 
  • We stopped here for a break and walked the short distance into the waterfall just as it started to rain. That did not take away from the beauty of the falls, there is always something magic about a wa...  more »

  • A very beautiful waterfall. Not very high compared to what I've seen elsewhere in Norway, but the waterfall is broad. Lots of pretty little streams that run down over small stairs.
  • Tvinnefossen, or Tvindefossen, is a popular waterfall by tourists and has a height of 109 meter. If driving near the Tvinnefossen and need a place to stay overnight, the camping site at the Tvinnefossen is awesome. Dining with a view on such a marvelous waterfall, that is really unique. The Tvinnefossen is quit impressive and very photogenic in all sesons. There are several viewpoint from where you can take pictures: at the roadside from a distance, just in front of the Tvinnefossen or from the camping site a little bit from aside. You mostly will photograph directly towards the west. Best time to visit the Tvinnefossen is early in the morning when the sun rises above the mountains and the first light rays of the sun reaches the waterfall. I visited the Tvinnefossen 4 times. You clearly can see the difference in volume of the Tvinnefossen between May and July. Especially after rainfall the Tvinnefossen gets more impressive. Upstream from the top of the Tvinnefossen there is another waterfall in the river Kroelvi, Breifossen (over 40 meters high).
  • Beautiful but not as exciting. Stalheimfossen is much better
  • Beatiful waterfall with a gifts shop and really good access
  • Breath taking wonderful view was here 2015
