This was a brief stop on a tour and well worth the visit. Nearby are shops and eateries. The location, right off the highway, is simply beautiful with farms and the river that the falls drain into. Being there in late May, the water was roaring. Simply beautiful.

There are plenty of waterfalls throughout western Norway, but most remain in the distance. The Steindalfossen is located right along route 7, and well worth the stop. There is a fairly large parking lot, along with two small gift shops, and it doesn't take long to walk a paved path that takes you behind the waterfall. The rocks above you... More

I recently visited the waterfall, while visiting a friend from the area. The weather was terrible, and is rained a lot. But still, this was well worth the trip. It´s probably more beautiful in sunlight, but on the other hand, the rain made waterfall quite strong and even more mighty to watch. I would definitely recommend everyone who find themselves...

This place is around hour drive from Bergen. There is free parking and nice picnic area where you can eat your lunch. I recommend you to go during the spring as the waterfall is the strongest in that time. We've been there during the rainy season, so it was nice as well. There are two gift shop right by the...

This handsome waterfall is unique; you can park and walk up to it, under it and have a wonderful view of the valley beyond in less than half an hour. But you'll want to stay and enjoy the refreshing mist off of it as well as the view and take advantage of the inviting little gift shops at the fall's... More

It was a beautiful stop by this great Waterfall on the way from Granvin to Bergen.. Although its short stop, but the place is so charming.. You can have a walk behind the waters and see closely the falling waters.. Very calm and nice area.. Free parkings on site..

Steinsdalsfossen is always lovely in summer, but this frozen waterfall in winter was even more breathtaking!

Steindalfossen in Norheimsund is a place for me very special, this waterfall is unique because you can go dry behind a water and have easy access for everyone :-) I highly recommend :-)

We were on the way to Norheimsund, when we stooped at the Waterfall. As it is Spring, the waterfall's flow is strong enough. Took some nice pictures there. Also, there is a nice gift shop and a small coffeehouse.
