The waterfall has a single drop of 275 metres (902 ft).
Vettisfossen is the tallest free-falling waterfall in Europe and in Norway which consists of only one drop, that is entirely free-falling, is not regulated and flows with a considerable volume.
Vettisfossen is voted as the most beautiful waterfall of Norway in 2016.What makes Vettisfossen so special is that it is still an unregulated waterfall.
Coming close to Vettisfossen you already see a plume of mist rising from the base of the waterfall. This makes photographing a little bit more difficult, but there are viewpoints where the mist of water doesn’t bother you.
Vettisfossen is fed by melted ice and snow from the glacier at the Stølsnostinden (Stølsnosbreen) and the glacier Koldedalsbreen. The river Morkaelvi, that feeds Vettisfossen, ends in the river Utla after a sheer drop of 275 meter.
