- Brief Directions: Vøringfossen (the "Vøring" waterfall, whatever Vøring means) is located along highway 7 between Oslo and Bergen - about 1/3 the distance starting from Beergen. Maybe 15 km east of the small city/village of Eidfjord.
- Notes: That road - highway 7 (or Riksvei 7 in Norwegian) is a beautifully sceniv road. Also the areast west of Vøringfossen holds some quite spectacular views if you take the time to explore.

- Description: Vøringfossen plunges 183 meters into a ravine in Måbødalen in Hordaland in Norway. It's an impressive waterfall with lots of photo opportunities; at the top is a hotel on one side of the ravine and a car parking area and small pathways on the other. It is also accessible from the bottom (a 30 minutes walk from the road). I haven't tried that but would assume some protection for the camera might be useful due to the water spray.
- Gear: Olympus SP550UZ
