The Vøringsfossen Waterfall will soon be viewable from a stunning new vantage point.

From Friday, visitors and passers-by will be able to cross the gorge above the 182-metre tall Vøringsfossen Waterfall via a new footbridge recently completed by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.

The waterfall has a free fall of 145 metres and a total fall of 182 metres, with its water plunging from the Hardangervidda into to the valley of Måbødalen.

The bridge makes use of 99 steps over the Måbødalen valley, according to Fjord Norway.

The stair bridge was assembled in seven parts, has a span of 47 meters and a height difference of 16 meters. It was designed by architect Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk and will be opened to the public on Friday.
