@VoidTorcher Yep - Norway has some very hard rocks that can sustain very long cliffs, and has been extensively folded - and is wet enough to form numerous small streams / creeks to plunge off of them :) Iceland, by contrast, couldn't do that - our land is mostly basalt, which isn't as strong, and we get too sheared off / pressed down during the ice ages to boot.
