Vøringsfossen (English: Vøring Falls)[2][3][4] is the 83rd highest waterfall in Norway on the basis of total fall.Located at the top of Måbødalen in the municipality of Eidfjord, in Hordaland, not far from Highway 7,[5] which connects Oslo with Bergen. It has a total drop of 182 meters,[6] and a major drop of 163 meters. It is perhaps the most famous in the country and a major tourist attraction on the way down from Hardangervidda to Hardangerfjord.[1]

The name Vøringsfossen (Old Norse Vyrðingr) is derived from the verb vyrða (English: esteem, revere). The last element fossen, the definite form of foss (waterfall), is a later addition.
