When you go to the beautiful land of Norway, you quickly understand that it is the land of the fjords and the waterfalls. The first glimpse that you get of the Voringfoss waterfall and you're sure to fall instantly and madly in love.
One of the most famous, and the most beautiful waterfalls is the Vøringfoss, though it is not the tallest one, but the 3rd in Norway. The Voringfoss waterfall is located in Eidfjord in the Hardanger Mountains. The waterfall is 183 m (about 600 ft.), with a 145 meter free fall and is a very impressive sight.
You feel how raw and strong nature is and how it makes makes you small, and how nature has built this stunning view through thousands of years. The best views are from the lookout next to the Fossili hotel.
Buses between Geilo and Odda pass right by the falls. The waterfall is situated about 280 km from Bergen and 300 km from Oslo.
