 The Seven Sisters waterfall

The Seven Sisters also known as Knivsflåfossen waterfall is the 39 th tallest waterfall in Norway. The waterfall consists of seven separate streams, and the tallest of the seven has a free fall that measures 250 metres.

The waterfall is located along the Geirangerfjorden. The waterfall is located just south of the historic Knivsflå farm, across the fjord from the old Skageflå farm. The falls are about 6.5 kilometres west of the village of Geiranger. It is part of the World Heritage Site.

The Seven Sisters waterfall is located on the northern side of the Geirangerfjorden, and directly across the fjord lies a single waterfall called "The Suitor" (Friaren). The legend of the seven sisters is that they dance playfully down the mountain, while a single waterfall opposite the seven sisters (known as the Friaren, a male onlooker) flirts playfully from across the fjord.

Hellesylt Waterfall is one of the most photographed waterfall in this area. The falls divide Hellesylt in two, providing the little settlement with a special atmosphere. Hellesylt is under constant threat from the mountain Åkerneset, which is about to erode into the Sunnylvsfjord. A collapse could cause a tsunami destroying most of downtown Hellesylt.
