Møre Og Romsdal, Norway

- PICTURES (2) AND MEDIA
- USER COMMENTS
This waterfall has been surveyed, mapped and measured in person by the World Waterfall Database.
Viewing the falls is perhaps the biggest obstacle in visitation. The falls are plainly visible from a distance from near the town of Sylte, but as can be seen in the attached photographs a series of power lines are strung across the Tafjord between the town and falls, which will inevitably remain in the way. The best option for viewing the falls is by boat on the fjord itself.
HISTORY AND NAMES
- Heggurfossen is the Official name of this waterfall
Heggurfossen is a waterfall we were quite aware of before we made our June 2011 trip to Norway, but as we didn’t bother researching its location before our visit we did not intend to survey it. Much to our surprise when we disembarked from the Eidsdal ferry and saw the falls in the distance, we made a B-line to find a good vista of the fall. Even if you don’t have the time to get close (via boat) its well worth watching this waterfall from a distance.
Location and directions
Heggurfossen is visible about halfway down the north wall of the Tafjord. The best viewpoint we found which was accessible by car was found along Route 93 between the towns of Sylte and Tafjord, about 2.45km east of Highway 63 in Sylte – there’s a large pullout on the right side of the road where the falls can be seen in the distance (the power lines will be in the way, so if you’re looking for a clearer photograph you may have to go elsewhere).
