Nice to cool off while walking under the fall. Really spectacular. Off course, the volume of water depends on how much snow is melting in the mountains behind. At the base of the fall, you find small tourist shops with food and bathrooms. The walk to the fall is easy and sage, even for handicap visitors.

Steinsdalsfossen is one of the best-known and photographed waterfalls of the country, where you can walk under and behind the waterfall. This video clip was taken in early June, when the amount of water is plentiful.

This was the first waterfall of our Norway trip, so very impressed. Had it been later in the week, after seeing an abundance of waterfalls from the snowmelt, might not have been that impressed. Did enjoy the ability to walk behind the falls. It's a short walk from the parking lot. Bathrooms available at the parking lot. Souvenir shop on... More

We saw this on our last day on an organised coach trip touring Norway. We pulled up below it and I just went WOW! The fact that you could walk up beside it and under it safely just added to the delight of it. As it had been such a hard winter and spring and now there had been a... More

Steinsdalsfossen is really a nice and impressive waterfall, just off the road from Bergen to the Hardangerfjorden area, a must visit fjord with many attractions. The Steinsdalsfossen is seen from the road, and there is a very comfortable parking area near it, with a shop selling some nice artworks and a little kiosk. The main fun feature of the Steinsdalsfossen... More

We were staying at Hotel Ullensvang in Lofthus & were not sure if we should make the detour back to Bergen via the Steindalsflossen falls. We took the ferry from Kinsarvik & were really glad that we made the effort to drive to the falls. The road to Norheindsund was interesting enough but the Steindalsflossen was so impressive. We would... More

The path behind the roaming water is fantastic . Lots of water because of the snow melting. Worth the stop .

It is about a mile outside Norheimsund and it is a lovely walk on a sunny day. Free entrance. A cafe at the base, with a couple of souvenir shops.
