Skageflafossen waterfall ,Stranda ,Norway


Address -:  Skågeflafossen waterfall ,Stranda Municipality, Møre og Romsdal, Norway

Friaren or Skågeflafossen is one of the more beautiful waterfalls in the Geirangerfjord, region More og Romsdal, Norway. Often waterfalls are named after the river they are in in, Geitelva. One of the names you sometimes see is Geitfossen, but Friaren is the common named used for the waterfall.
Friaren can only be viewed by boat but that is what most people do when they are in Geiranger: taking the ferry Geiranger-Hellesylt.
Friaren is one of the major waterfalls in the Geirangerfjord on the opposite site of the famous Dei Sju Systrene (Seven Sisters) and is 440 meter high. You can’t see all of Friaren but if you watch the picture (left) carefully, you see a glimpse of the upper part of Friaren.
What makes Friaren so special is that it has a distinguished shape (one stream, splitting in two) and it has a noteworthy volume.
They call it this because the rocks in the falls look like a whiskey bottle. There’s some tale about how he cannot get across the fjord to claim one of the sisters so he drinks himself to death! you may guess Norwegian fjord explorers had a lot of time on their hands.
