You can visit the waterfalls easily as they are simply along highway 7. There are multiple parking lots and great view points, amongst others at the Fossli Hotel at the top of the canyon beside the waterfall. You can then have a drink and a piece of fruit pie afterwards at their cafetaria and enjoy the views.
But the best thing to do is to do the long walking trail down to the base of the waterfall and back. The whole things takes between 3 and 4 hours. It is about 300-400m difference in altitude.
The first half of the trail from the top is on the old, abandonned road along the canyon and walking through several old but short tunnels. If you do not want to do that long part of the walk, you can park your car at the end of that road walk as it crosses the main road at a little parking spot.
Then, a few hundred meters further down you get off the old road and go down a path through the woods to almost at the level of the river and then continue for 1,5km till the base of the waterfall.
The trail is not much of a path at all. Merely red arrows telling you were to go and climb over rocks. So while it is never really dangerous, this is only for people comfortable climbing and jumping over rocks. This is not a walking trail. You will need a minimum of fitness and a lot of agility.
But it is worth it and the views are spectacular.

Don’t be fooled by the 1km hike that says 1 hr in and 1 hr out. It is exactly that BUT that doesn’t mean it’s easy. I am not exaggerating when I say there are a few spots in the hike where one misstep means death. For about 75% of this hike you are walking on a rock slide with huge rock form the mountain. Every step is a challenge and a misstep in these rocks you could injure yourself easily. The trail along the bank at times is so washed out that one slippage means a disastrous end.

The falls are beautiful and it is a badge of honor to make it past the rope bridge. We stopped shortly after the rope bridge because it was just too wet from the spray making footing very unsure for us.

It took the 2 hrs but we have to say we were spent afterwards. Climbing over that landslide was hard work. This hike is not for the faint of heart or any small children.

We were visiting while it rained and it was foggy. But when we got the the view of the waterfalls, magic happened and the fog was gone. It was really amazing. The waterfalls are beautiful. It is definitely worth a visit.

We did a cruise to Norway in late Aug, 2018.we put in at the small village of Eidfjord, and did a day trip up to the Hardranger Plateau. Stark, scenic beauty reminiscent of the Scottish highlands. On the way back to the village, we stopped to visit Voringfossen, the most spectacular waterfall I have ever personally seen, and Ive seen many on several continents and islands. Well developed for viewing without being too encroaching on the natural splendor. The waterfall tumbles from high up a mountainside and cascades hundreds of feet to the riverbed below. Spectacular views abound from the river basin, to the sheer basaltic rock faces to the colorful ferns and flora surrounding the viewing platform. A natural delight that cant be missed if you are ever in the Eidfjord area.
