Vøringfossen

Waterfall Norway, Norway

The most visited waterfall of the country Vøringfossen

Vøringfossen is the 83rd highest waterfall in Norway by total fall. It lies at the top of Måbødalen in the municipality of Eidfjord, in Hordaland, not far from Highway 7, which connects Oslo with Bergen. It has a total drop of 182 meters and a major drop of 163 meters. It is perhaps the most famous in the country and a major tourist attraction on the way down from Hardangervidda to Hardangerfjord. The name Vøringfossen (Old Norse Vyrðingr) is derived from the verb vyrða (English: esteem, revere). The last element -fossen, the finite form of foss (waterfall), is a later addition.
