This is another impressive Norwegian waterfall which drops a considerable height into the river below. There are newly constructed viewing platforms which allow great views from many positions around the waterfall. There is ample parking at the falls plus the adjacent hotel offers food and...More

We visited Voringsfossen on a shore excursion during a port visit to Eidfjord on our cruise of the Norwegian fjords. The scenery is breathtaking! The observation points are close to the Fossli Hotel, which houses a Zimmerman piano used by Edvard Grieg to compose his...More

Vøringsfossen is Norway's most famous waterfall & rightly so; in sunlight, it's spectacular. But that's the catch. As with everything outdoors in Norway, the quality of the photos you take will be determined to a good extent by the quality of the light you take...More

We'd highly recommend the short drive to Voringfossen from Eidfjord and viewing the waterfalls from the Hotel Fossil. The most breathtaking and scary waterfall we've seen. Go early to avoid a completely different experience amidst the hordes of tour bus people. We went at 8.30...More

Multiple waterfalls in a gorge type setting- beautiful! Try to go early or late to avoid the bus loads of tourists.

Just right off road #7 connecting Bergen-Oslo + a short 2-5 min walk and you got yourself a view of the waterfall from the top. If you wander just a bit longer in the little Forest on top, you'll also find a bridge in the...More

you can get a roundtrip bus tour at the TI which is right in front of the ship. TI is half the ship price but you don't get a coffee or tea. Hope this helps
