Walking the woods and finally reaching the waterfall after picnics en route was breathtaking - yet peaceful - a must do. There are easy walks for the less able - just as stunning

Our most memorable hike from this part of Norway was to track along the river on a rainy gloomy June day and visit these stunning watefalls. Only an hour outdide Balestrand, its a must see.

While we would have liked to hike, the weather was questionable; but the tourist info center advised we still go by driving; it was well worth the trip for both the waterfall and the new lookout platform that has an amazing view down on the...More
