Vinnufossen or Vinnufallet is the tallest waterfall in Europe and the sixth-tallest in the world. The 865-meter (2,838 ft) tall tiered horsetail waterfall is located just east of the village of Sunndalsøra in the municipality of Sunndal in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The falls are part of the river Vinnu which flows down from the Vinnufjellet mountain and it is fed from the Vinnufonna glacier. The falls flow into the river Driva near the village of Hoelsand.

Nine of the world's 20 tallest waterfalls are in Norway and several of them in Fjord Norway and Nordmøre. The waterfalls are not only beautiful, they are also important sources of energy. In Norway almost all electricity comes from hydropower.
