We did a stop a this waterfall for a 5min walk up to this beautifull waterfall. You will get slightly wet by the nice mist, and if you walk a little further, you get to walk between the wall and the rock wall. Nice stop...More

We love this Norway highest waterfall (50 meters) as it offers unique experience to walk behind the water! It is easy to get here by car and parking space is generous. We heard the greatest water volume is in May and June, but we enjoy...More

You have a great chance to stay under a watterfall, close enough to feel its power. Then you can continue and have a nice view of it from a nice place above. Available easily for all, elderly people or children. Parking free.

The waterfall is easily accessible from the roadside and there are excellent facilities there. Nice opportunity to stretch your legs.

There is a free parking along the route 7, 2 souvenir shops, a cheap coffee bar and free toilet. Worths a stop

For most waterfalls you view them here you can get up close and really feel and see the power of the water. Be warned though go during the day and there are more tour buses than Oxford Street.

A nice waterfall with a great view, right beside the main road. Hard to miss it. Definitely worth the uphill walk to get there - and the special feeling you get when walking behind a waterfall (you will not get wet). The downside: It can...More

What I loved about this waterfall experience more than any of the others, was being able to walk behind it and take photos from all angles. The noise is quite deafening up close and the spray like being caught in a downpour of rain, but...More
