Stalheim is a village in the municipality Voss in Hordaland county, Norway. The small village lies along the European route E16 highway in the northeastern part of the municipality. The village sits at a high point in the inner part of the Nærøydalen valley which leads northeastwards towards the Nærøyfjorden. The highway runs through a series of tunnels to descend into the valley, although the old road Stalheimskleivi can still be used with its hairpin turns and 20% grade.
The Stalheimsfossen waterfall is the most notable sight in the area. The view from Stalheim is well known from several paintings, in particular Johan Christian Dahl's painting Fra Stalheim from 1842. Sivlesteinen, a memorial of the poet Per Sivle, was raised by Noregs Ungdomslag and other organizations at Stalheim in 1909.
