Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Western Norway / Sogn og Fjordane / Aurland Municipality / Flam / Brekkefossen
Marvel at the long drop of Brekkefossen, a waterfall pouring from a hanging valley through a twisting gully. Though it can be viewed in full from the Flam railway, up close you can only take in about 115 m (377 ft) of the gorgeous waterfall's full 545.5 m (1,790 ft)--this perhaps accounts for its being generally overlooked. Wear sturdy shoes on the steep trek to the viewing point at the falls' base, where you will also be rewarded by beautiful sights of Flam, a nearby village. Take a walking stick if you need a little extra help to climb the trail.

Amazing waterfall that rivals any we saw in Iceland! Worth the short climb but was a very muddy trail as it was raining earlier. Great view of the fjord and Flåm also.
