This is a must-see venue that is just minutes past Odda on the main route. It is literally right on the road, is free, and allows you to see and feel the strong mist coming off the falls. The twin falls are cool and not all that common in the world - especially this easy to get to. The water... More

I drove by this waterfall by the end of August this year. It was packed with tourists. Great waterfall right by the main road. I guess when its high season it can be difficult to park. Worth seeeing when going by this spot south of Odda.

On your way between Odda and Røldal you'll pass this waterfall. It falls right next to the road, so it's easy to experience it. Just stop at the parking lot next to it:)

If you are driving from Bergen to Stavanger take the scenic route! Langfoss Waterfall and Latefossen Waterfall are both right along the highway an have a small tourist shop and parking lots next to them. Both are great stops to take pictures and feel the mist from the waterfall on your face.

Twin falls crossing under the road. Just stunning. Follow the stream towards Odda, and you will see the waters are crystal clear, remarkably clean. If you are looking for impressive waterfalls in Norway, this one has to be on your list

My spouse and I took a drive from Stavanger to Tysseldal to hike Trolltunga. While passing to the town of Odda we couldn't resist but to stop in this dramatic waterfall to listen to the sound and enjoy the beautiful drop. We come from sunny Miami which is flat land but we have travelled to many places with beautiful scenery... More

Driving from Odda to Preikestolen we came across this by chance. A great place to stop for photos and the rest of the route is equally beautiful!

Norway has so many amazing waterfalls and this one just adds to the list. It is quite easily accessible right on E13 and you dont have to go looking for this :) the view is quite spectacular with the two falls joining at the foot of the bridge.. you can take some beautiful shots of the waterfall from the side...

Norway is full of many dramatic waterfalls with character all on their own. I searched many travel sites including you tube to try picking supposedly the best. But in planning my driving trip for Norway it was difficult to choose which one to visit. Therefore I resigned to visit only the ones within 30 minutes out of our driving range.... More

The twin falls are quite big, plenty of water and also a lot of spray in the air. On the other hand, they're not that special for Norway, which probably has thousands of such falls. The main advantage is the proximity to the road. I don't think it's worth a special trip for it from Odda (which we did..), but... More
