Attraction along Hardangervidda

Vøringsfossen

Vøringsfossen is perhaps Norway’s most famous waterfall. Here, huge volumes of water plunge 145 metres from the Hardangervidda plateau down into the Måbødalen valley. The gushing water and the dramatic contrast from the fjord landscape to the plateau are impressive sights. You can also admire the waterfall from below. From the main road there is a 30-minute walk to the waterfall. Unfortunately, the landscape around Vøringsfossen is characterised by many years of wear and tear. A renovation programme started in 2015, the objectives of which are to create more consistency between the viewing points and to provide a safe experience for visitors.
