Vøringsfossen

  • Fossli, Eidfjord
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The best-known waterfall in Norway. See vast quantities of water plunge 182 m from the Hardangervidda plateau into the Måbødalen valley. Spectacular viewing platforms near Fossli Hotel 1 km from route 7 Norwegian Scenic Route Hardangervidda. Norwegian Scenic Routes started building several viewing platforms in 2015, and all the viewing platforms near Fossli Hotel are now completed.

There is a path through the canyon going into the Vøringsfossen waterfall. It is a fantastic hike through a wild landscape. More information here.

The waterfall is partially or entirely frozen during winter. If there is heavy snow, you may not see the waterfall. On the other hand, if it is snow-free or low on snow, you can see the spectacular waterfall from the viewing- and photo point at Fossatromma, about 150 meters below Vøringsfoss Kafeteria & Souvenir.
When large amounts of snow, it is not safe to go to the viewpoints at Fossli Hotel. This because the security fences can be entirely covered by snow. 

Season:
​​​​​​Parking and toilet facilities at Fossli are available from 01.04. – 31.10 - subject to small / normal amounts of snow. When traveling at the viewing points, please pay attention to weather and conditions.
