Norway: Waterfallmania in Kinsarvik

Updated: Jan 19

On the hike through the valley of the waterfalls at Kinsarvik, you are accompanied by the constant sound of the water ...

... sometimes it is murmuringly quiet as you walk along the stream and sometimes thunderously loud when the river Kino plunges down a steep granite wall. Four beautiful waterfalls lie close together on the way up from Kinsarvik to Hardangervidda.

Very impressive - especially as in some places you can get within a few metres of the falling water masses - for example to fill up your water bottle with the clear, clean fresh water.
