Vøringsfossen waterfall has a 182 meters (597 feet) free fall before continuing through the grand canyon Måbødalen. The river Bjoreia steeps down the 2-300 metres deep valley and Vøringsfossen and Tyssvikjo falls into the deep. Many people think Tyssvikjo is Vøringfossen because they see it first. Its just a nice small waterfall compared to Vøringfossen.

Vøringfossen waterfall is situated about 280 km from Bergen and 300 km from Oslo. Among many Norwegian waterfalls the best known one is Vøringfossen. The most beautiful view you will have when sun and water are creating a rainbow into the valley. Høel Farm is the mountain farm that once owned the waterfall.

At the foot of Vøringfossen, and by the ascent of the Måbødalen valley, you will find the Hardangervidda Nature Centre which is a must along with a journey on the Troll Train.
