You will find many stunning waterfalls in the Sunnhordland area, among them Langfoss, which was voted one of the 10 most beautiful waterfalls in the world by CNN in 2011. Many of the waterfalls are situated close to roads - enabling all visitors to enjoy the splendour and power of these majestic natural attractions.
Some of Sunnhordland's rivers are among the best salmon rivers in Norway.
The mountains of Sunnhordland are also a true adventure eldorado, offering endless possibilities for longer or shorter walks, which you can undertake individually or as part of an organised tour.
Sunnhordland is located by the North Sea. The ocean has always been important to the people living in this part of Norway. Fishing has given many their means of livelihood, whilst others were engaged as sailors or ship builders.
The region offers many opportunities for those wishing to catch the big fish or just want to enjoy the dramatic, yet fascinating, coastal landscape.
Folgefonna is the third largest glacier on Norway's mainland, and is said to be the safest and biggest plateau glacier in Norway.
The glacier is up to 37 kilometres long and 16 kilometres broad - covering an area of 219 square kilometres. The ice is up to 450 metres thick and the highest point is at 1,662 metres above sea level.
Folgefonna is accessible for different kinds of activities - depending on which challenge you are seeking. Together with trained glacier guides, you can go for walks on the glacier, and even climb crevasses. Paths lead all the way up to the edge of the glacier. Others may enjoy the easy walk up to Lake Bondhus (only 189 metres above sea level) - a walk of approximately 45 minutes. You can also go skiing at the Folgefonna Summer Ski Centre.
