Overview

Experience a journey through a landscape with views of majestic mountains, roaring waterfalls and idyllic fruit farms on Hardanger in a nutshell.

The round trip Hardanger in a nutshell takes you through beautiful scenery with views of majestic mountains, roaring waterfalls and idyllic orchards. The 179 km long Hardangerfjord provides natural landscapes that are spellbinding to even the most well-traveled tourist. Here you will find cultural and natural pearls side by side.

The tour lasts about 10 hours and starts at the train station in Bergen with the scenic Bergen Railway from Bergen to Voss. Bergen Railway is the highest altitude railway in Northern Europe, and around 100 kilometers of the line run through wild mountain terrain.

From Voss, the trip continues by bus to the beautiful village of Ulvik. If you are lucky enough to be here in May, you can enjoy the fantastic fruit blossoming.
From Ulvik, the tour continues with a short boat ride to Eidfjord. Along the fjord, you will see small mountain farms clinging to steep slopes.

You can also visit the Hardangervidda Nature Centre. Entrance to the center is included. Here are exhibitions on three floors, aquarium and interactive stations. You can also see the magnificent panorama movie by Ivo Caprino showing on 5 large screens.
