A Trip To Kjelfossen, World’s 18th Largest Waterfall

Kjelfossen Waterfall

Our Norway in a Nutshell, had us travel through Gudvangen, Undredal, Kjelfossen Waterfall, and Flam before we could finally make it to Geilo. While Gudvagen is a Viking valley, Undredal houses the Scandinavia’s smallest church, and Kjelfossen exhibits one of the most relentless waterfalls of all times. From history ranging through 11th-century to the present times, each one of these places spells scenic splendor. Which is why, we saw a lot of kayakers, photographers, cruisers, cyclists, and hikers on our way. Each one set out to explore Norway in their own debonair. 

Kjelfossen Waterfall Gudvagen

On this beautiful summer day, the skies were blue, as our cruise sailed at a leisurely pace on the surface of the Sogne and Naeoryfjord. As we looked around, all we could see was the incandescent morning dewdrops shining over mountain moss like a green carpet on the hilltop slope. As if, the giant mountains on either side, were dressed in green only to, welcome us into their ‘scenic’ arms. Slowly and gradually giving us a glimpse of the crown, from where the snow steeps down to provide for the river Kjelfossgrovi.

So here we were finally getting a glimpse of Norway’s highest waterfall, the Kjelfossen, perched on the Southeast end of Gudvangen Village. Cascading, gently from the grey glaciated Norwegian mountains into the depths of the rivulet. At the height of 2,760 ft, Kjelfossen also happens to be the world’s 18th-tallest waterfall. A few minutes later, the Kjelfossen waterfalls began to fade away in the backdrop of the Gudvangen Tunnel, as we approached Bakka, a village on the Northern end of Gudvangen.

For anyone sailing the Fjord cruise from Gudvangen, Kjelfossen Waterfall will fall on your left. (within a few minutes of sailing) So, secure an early seat on the open deck to enjoy the best views of the waterfall, mountains, and the Viking villages. Norway, in a Nutshell, was a treat for our soul and we still can’t stop drooling over its magnanimous display of scenic splendor.
