we stayed at the hotel at the top of the waterfall, so we were able to time our views when the tourist buses had gone. Often we were the only ones there. They are in the middle of putting up extensive viewing platforms that are...More

What is it about waterfalls that fascinates people? There is always a frenzy to take pictures and take advantage of standing mesmerized before it. This is a nice waterfall. Maybe not in the world's top 20, but a nice waterfall, none the less.

Amazing example of earth and mother nature. So many pictures to take. Shoot a video as we did - the result is stunning.

Not Norways higest, but sure one of the most beautiful in spring. When the snow and ice in the mountains melt and gather in the waterfall, it is just overwhelmning

Vøringsfossen provides one of the most fantastic views in Norway. Do be careful and do not go outside the fences and security measures taken by the authorities. There have been several deaths as tourists have fallen trying to get a good picture or selfie. Children...More

It is part of the national tourist route Hardangervidda in Norway. It is one of the most famous waterfalls of Norway and it is located near the road. Large volumes of water plunge more than 180 m from the Hardangervidda plateau to the Måbodalen valley....More

Impressive 180 meter waterfall, best view was from the platform nearby the hotel, away from the tour bus on the other side of the valley. Will give you the best view on the waterfall across the valley, but also to be very close-by some smaller...More

The waterfall is probably the best thing to see in the Eidfjord area. We parked by the Overlook hotel and got a great view of the fjord and the waterfall. We then drove down and parked off the side of the ride, near where the...More

Extremely spectacular waterfall set amidst rugged mountain scenery. Among the top 5 things I've ever seen. Not as much water as Niagara but in the middle of nowhere so somehow more impressive. Even the thunderous roar is worth the trip, let alone the view.

Just curious, as we were hiking to Voringfossen, we noted metal debris, and a large tyre (possibly from an airplane) along the route. Was there some sort of accident here?
