Waterfalls are particularly beautiful and impressive during spring when the snow melts in the mountains.


Vøringsfossen is one of the attractions along the Norwegian Scenic Route Hardangervidda, and it is among the most visited tourist attractions in Norway. Its total fall of 182 metres from the Hardangervidda plateau makes it an impressive sight.

The Seven Sisters (De syv søstre)

The Seven Sisters are among the most photographed waterfalls in the Geirangerfjord. The waterfall is made up of seven waterfalls that plunge into the fjord, which explains its name. According to legend, all of the sisters are unmarried, and the waterfall on the other side of the fjord (see below) has made many unsuccessful marriage proposals.
