Is the most photographed waterfall in Norway. The free waterfall is approximately 20 meters. On the right side it’s possible to walk between the waterfall and the mountain. It’s easy accessible from the main road (riksvei 7) and it’s possible to park next to the waterfall
With bus from Oslo
The bus trip from Oslo to Norheimsund with Haukeliekspressen takes 9 hours and five minutes, and normally includes a food break at the restaurant in Seljestad and change of bus. If you for some reason stay on the same bus, you’ll end up in Haugesund, a city 3, 5 hours south of Bergen. As a consequence of not changing bus, your suitcase will not follow you and will end up in Norheimsund, with no terminal (been there done that)
The bus (kystbussen) from Haugesund to Bergen takes 3, 5 hours and includes a trip with the ferry (40 minutes), and change of Bus somewhere near Bergen. So if you for some reason wants to spend almost 13 hours on the bus, it’s quite and exciting journey. The landscape in Haugesund is very different from Bergen and other cities.
When you finally arrive in Bergen and want to travel to Norheimsund, Hardangerlinja is the bus route you need to take, in area (M) at the bus terminal. The bus takes you there in 1, 5 hours, I paid 135 NK for the trip and the bus drivers only accept cash!
that's where you end up if you plan to come to Norheimsund by bus from Oslo, and don't change bus in Seljestad. It's a beautiful place but far, far out from your destination.
