Vøringsfossen dazzles tourists with its multiple waterfalls all converging at the head of Måbødalen in Hardanger.
Although there are numerous ways to experience the waterfall and the vertical-walled valley, most people will view the falls from the upper and lower lookouts.
A path from the scenic national tourist route through Hardanger (Rv 7) leads to the foot of the waterfall.
The old road, constructed between 1887 and 1924, winds up the mountain side in 125 hairpin bends - an impressive piece of road engineering.
There are several possibilities for photo stops, picnics and activities in the near surroundings.
The Hardangervidda Nature Centre in Eidfjord is situated at the bottom of the Måbødalen Valley. The centre has exhibitions from the vast mountain plateau of Hardangervidda, as well as hands-on activities and a cinema.
