The Øyrafossen is a very high waterfall with a small stream. With a single drop of about 690 meters the river Øyralii falls down from the Dalsethaugane, a plateau on an altitude of 1200 meters with several small lakes.

The view on the Øyrafossen with the picturesque village Lærdalsoyri in front of the fall is really enchanting. Only the view makes a visit worthwhile. For a good view you have to go to the north side of the fjord to see the waterfall in total.

Probably the fall is only visible in the early summer or after heavy rainfall but is an official named waterfall. The Øyrafossen is situated in Lærdalsoyri in the region Sogn og Fjordane.
