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

In the process of being developed for a better visitor experience.Very impressive. Nice easy walk up behind the falls and if its not windy you won't get wet.

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.

The waterfall was relatively short except that you can walk behind it. There is proper walkway with handrails and also parking below. There are also some shops that sell souvenirs but were closed pretty early. Also, a tourist information center by the car park.

You get a very nice picture from this waterfall, it is definitely worth the visit if you are around in the region. Wouldn't take a too long detour just for this though.

We stopped here on our drive back to Bergen and weren't disappointed. It's a beautiful waterfall in a charming area. Great photo op from the car park or the top. You can walk behind the waterfall to the top. There is also great washroom facilities and a small gift shop. Not worth going out of way for but worth a... More
