The Storseterfossen waterfall is one of the most known waterfalls in the Geiranger area, and is part of the trail to the Storesetra farm. A well-prepared path with a railing takes you behind the waterfall without getting wet. The hike is fairly short, but has some steep sections - overall a great afternoon adventure.
From Geiranger, follow road 63 south through Gerianger centre towards Hole for about 4 km. Make a left at the sign towards Vesterås. Pass the cabins on your left and head right onto a gravel road that takes you to the parking at Vesterås.
The trailhead is located at the parking at Vesterås farm. From the parking, follow the trail along the outbuilding at the end of the parking lot. Continue uphill until you reach the path paved by stones, made by Sherpas in 2014. From here, the incline is even all the way until you reach the top marked by signs. Head down to the waterfall and make sure you follow the guidelines at the sign. Passing behind the roaring waterfall is quite the experience, but be cautious on the wet slippery parts of the path.
You now have the option to follow the trail even further into the valley, to Storesetra farm, or head back to the parking.
There is a stand at the parking with walking sticks for loan on the trip. If you want to retain the sticks after your hike, put NOK 50 in cash in the box on the stand.
