Flott verdensberømt foss som du kan gå under, og videre og se "ned! på. Flott utsikt over Steinsdalen og Norheimsund fra oppe ved fossen. Great waterfall - you can also walk under it - and look down to it :) Great view.

We visited this waterfall as part of our tour and we were not disappointed. It was not a hard walk to go behind and see the water cascading down

A very impressive sight, with the water cascading over the cliff above the little houses. Closer to, up the fairly steep path it is amazing that we could walk behind the vast curtain of water without getting wet! It is a very popular attraction, so be prepared for a lot of people either climbing up or coming down - in... More

This waterfall was definitely a treat; there's a path you can use to go up right behind and around it and take amazing photographs of yourself and the waterfall, and the gift shop next to it has lots of cool stuff (though pricey as usual per Norway). The waterfall and the view from the path behind it is so incredibly... More

Not the profusion of water I see in most pictures since we visited in the fall. But well worth the stop. A short walk up a paved trail to stand behind the waterfall with great views of the countryside.

This waterfall is beautiful, as are many in the area. However, there is a path up that allows you to walk behind the waterfall, without getting wet.

Worth the trip - also recommend the Museum in Nordheimsund where they repair historic ships and have a pavilion with the stiry of visitors to the area since the 1840's.

Nice place to visit. Unlike most places in Norway very developed tourism. There are shops at the entrance selling relatively cheep memorabilia and toilets. The trail is easy and suitable for everyone. The water fall is not very big but it is nice that you can walk behind the wall of water

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.
