Norway's waterfalls

Many waterfalls drop dramatically from a high mountain cliff down to the fjord below, while others intersperse the watercourse in rivers. They are all an integral part of the variation in the Norwegian landscape.

The tallest waterfalls in Norway drop over 800 metres. Vinnufallet is the tallest according to the World Waterfall Database. It is situated in Sunndalen in Northwest Norway, an area with many beautiful waterfalls, including Åmotan and Mardalsfossen.

Some of the most famous attractions are Vøringsfossen in Måbødalen valley and The Seven Sisters (“De syv søstre”) in Geiranger – so named since it is said to resemble the flowing hair of seven maidens. The mighty Kjosfossen is one of many highlights on the Flåm Railway. At Kjossfossen, actors dressed as the mythological female creature Huldra dance and sing in front of the waterfall during summer.

For Norwegians, waterfalls are more than a good photo opportunity. Many are used to generate electricity, powering the local area in an environmentally friendly way.
