Worth the visit.

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 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.

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

We visited on a snowy but sunny day in March. It was quiet, free to enter and to park and a stunning sight. It was spectacular in the snow and the frozen waterfall dropping down from the top made a magical and attractive photograph. The short path up from the car park has been improved since our last visit and... More

Steinsdalsfossen waterfall is situated just outside the little village of Norheimsund in Hardangerfjord - one hour by car from Bergen. One of few waterfalls you actually can walk behind without getting wet. Recently the path along and behind the waterfall has been improved a lot. A rail has been put up, and there is built a platform where you can... More

Although Norway is full of water and waterfall, this one is specific! A huge quantity of water falls down from a rock. A nice trail leads you under the waterfall and one can enjoy staying under it. There is a nearby parking and toilets/bathrooms as well as little a restaurant with souvenirs.

We visited the waterfall one cold, snowy day in March and found that it was spectacular and very attractive in the snow. What made it for us was just standing back and watching the scale of the landscape with the water falling down the snow covered cliff with flakes of snow gently falling. There were some other visitors there at... More
