A number of the tallest waterfalls in the world can be found in Western Norways, drops of several hundred meters (1000-2000 feet) are common. Some of these plunge directly into the fjord below, others fall down steep mountain walls along the deep valleys. Although these don't have the enormous volume of more famous waterfalls like Niagara or Victoria, they are delightful experiences. The world waterfall database included three waterfalls in western Norway among the world's top ten.

 Some of the famous and more accessible waterfalls (foss/fossen = waterfall):
