This site is so beautiful. You actually can walk behind the falls. Climbing to the top permits stunning views of the countryside. Nice shops to visit to find local craft items. If you are in Bergen make the effort to come here.

There is something about waterfalls that we humans find fascinating. Perhaps because it is beautiful and powerful. Here you can get so close that you can hear the water roar.

Easy to spot from the road (just before Norheimsund on the way from Bergen) this is an impressive waterfall. A pathway specially built so you can walk behind it and take pictures including the town and Hardangerfjord makes it a popular stop for coach tours....More

It's something you have to see when your in the area. You can go under the waterfall and look close at the massive watervolum that comes down. Also short walk from the parking space.

We stopped at 3 waterfalls while driving from Bergen to Flam, and this was by far the busiest, probably because it’s right off of a main road and a lot of tour buses stop here. It’s definitely worth the stop, though. It’s a beautiful and...More

Consider that in Norway during Summer it never gets actually dark. I agree with the other answer, by bus it may take up to 90 minutes to 2 hours. Bus service is very punctual. Enjoy the ride. Best luck.
