Although the waterfalls in Finnmark aren’t very high there are a few waterfalls really worthwhile to visit and Vassfossen is one of them. Vassfossen is an unofficial named waterfall in a side river of the Jakobselv not far from Tredjefossen. The water of the Vasselvi drops down vertically over 15 meters and can be even so width.

The Vassfossen is situated west of Vadsø in the north of Norway, not far from the border with Finland.

From Vadsø, take road 75 to the west, along the Varangerfjorden and in Annijoki/Vestre Jakobselv take road Fv323 to the north. The road follows the course of the river until it reaches the Vaselvi with the beautiful Vasfossen. From here you probably have to walk. I am not sure if there is a trail but there are photo’s taken of the fall, so probably there is.

Two are several other waterfalls near Vadsø like:
Forstefossen, Andrefossen and Tredjefossen.
