Waterfalls in Norway

There are so many beautiful waterfalls in Norway. Norway is a real waterfall country, the number one in Europe, perfect for chasing waterfalls. It is also has a high density of waterfalls, mostly in the southern parts of Norway. Norway is also famous because of its tall waterfalls. The top 10 highest waterfalls in Europe will be dominated with waterfalls in Norway.

This can’t be a surprise when you consider that the Norwegian scenery forms an ideal base for high and powerful waterfalls. The Norwegian countryside has a lot of mountains, plateaus, glaciers, high volume of rainfall and many fjords with (relatively) high and steep mountain areas.

There is no other country where I prefer to go to photograph waterfalls. Right as you drive into southern Norway the waterfalls are already falling from the mountains everywhere. There are many types of waterfalls, but Norway is a country with a lot of impressive waterfalls with a relatively high volume. And almost all of these waterfalls are located in beautiful surroundings.

My favorite place to go to though is the area around Odda. Especially a visit to the Husedalen a 'must'. A beautiful hike of a few hours takes you along 4 dizzying waterfalls of more than 100 meters high. Only disadvantage of the Hardangerfjord, where Odda is located, is that it can sometimes rain. In the summer months, however, this is not so bad.

Norway is also the only country in Europe (perhaps also in the world) with more than 30 waterfalls rated 4 or higher (on the scale of 5). Many of these waterfalls can be found in southern Norway in the Vestland and Møre og Romsdal regions. On my website I still use the old region classification. This website also contains a link to a Google map where all of Norway's waterfalls can be found on a map. From there you can also click through to more information about the respective waterfall.

Google map with waterfalls in Norway

Before my trip to Norway, there is always 1 thing I do first, create a Google map of my trip. Then it is also convenient if there is already a Google map with waterfalls in Norway! Every waterfall in Norway (with a height of 5 meters or more) is indicated on this map. Of course, there are always waterfalls that I don't know that well yet or that have little information about them. These are indicated with a small blue circle. If you know a waterfall in Norway that I do not yet have in my Google map of waterfalls in Norway, please send me a message via the contact form!.
When choosing a waterfall, you will see a link to the waterfall where you have travel information about this waterfall in Iceland, where to park your car, exact gps coordinates, height, etc... Everything you want to know when you want to visit a waterfall in Iceland.

Online hiking maps Norway

For me Norway is the place to be if I want to see all those amazing waterfalls. Most waterfalls are easy to reach but sometimes you NEED a map. Not always are trails well signed. Fortunately, there are several online hiking maps of Iceland that can help you plan your hike and navigate the terrain.

One of the best online hiking maps of Norway is the Norgeskart map. This free online map is available to anyone with an internet connection. The map offers detailed information on hiking trails and paths. It also allows you to easily search for specific points of interest. You can choose several map layouts.

If you want even more detailed information about a hike, you also can visit websites withe details information about trails. One of my favorite website is GodTur (in Norwegian). This website offers detailed information on trails, as well as maps of specific areas.
