Vøringsfossen Waterfall is a pretty spectacular natural phenomena, not just one falls, but several, the largest with a direct drop of 145metres – the whole drop being 182.  There are a couple of lookouts to make viewing the falls easy. The top lookout has a slightly precarious cliff walk from it for a more panoramic view.  You can also see it on your way past on the Trolltoget train or walk up from the Hardanger Trail.

What's really interesting about this falls is that it's switched on and off – in the summer, visitor season it's on, and in winter it's turned off and the flow is used in a hydro electric plant.
