Steinsdalsfossen waterfall

Local name: Steinsdalsfossen

The Norwegian Steinsdalsfossen Waterfall is 46 meters high, part of the Fosselva River flowing from Lake Myklavatnet (814 meters above sea level). Tourists can reach the path to a narrow bridge and standing between the rock and the water curtain admire this amazing phenomenon without getting wet.

The 15-meter Steinsdalsfossen waterfall model was presented at the Expo 2000 in Hanover as an important part of the Norwegian presentation. The waterfall itself was created at the end of the 17th century, when the Fosselva river changed its course.

The waterfall is a very popular tourist attraction, its assets were once appreciated by the German emperor Wilhelm II himself. Apparently he came here every summer until the outbreak of World War I. Today, Steinsdalsfossen can be reached by hiking trail or by car to the nearby parking lot.
