Norheimsund is the administrative centre of Kvam, and the village is located on the northern shore of the Hardangerfjord.
Norheimsund has one of Norway's most visited waterfalls - The Steinsdalsfossen. The waterfall is special because you can walk behind it without getting wet. When you stand under the waterfall with water roaring above your head you get a real sense of the forces of nature.
If you come to Norheimsund by boat a stroll in the harbor in the village is highly recommended. Norheimsund and Øystese are located near one other and their attractions overlap.
