Hardanger in a Nutshell Private
You will start your tour from the oldest part of Bergen. On your way, you will have many short photo stops in attractive places, such as Bergenhus Fortress – a home to the Norwegian kings since the 12th century, when Bergen became the capital of Norway. Also, you will witness the Haakon Hall Royal Residence, erected in the 13th century, and medieval Rosenkrantz Tower. Later on, you will move on to the next stop – Hanseatic Office Bruggen, which belonged to the German Trading Hanseatic League that used to be the most important trading center in Norway for more than 400 years.
You will continue your way on a bus to the shore of the famous Hardanger fjord via the mountain region of Kvam, and you will make stops near the Steindalsfossen and Bratte waterfalls. In fact, you can walk behind the falling water of Steindalsfossen while managing to keep your feet dry.
ROUTE OPTION 1:
After one hour driving along the Hardanger fjord, you will stop in the Hardangervidda Center of Nature. There, you will explore a museum that provides us with information about life in the mountains and their inhabitants. After lunch, you will head back to Bergen through the city of Voss – there are plenty of amazing spots for photographers in the city.
ROUTE OPTION 2:
From Norheimsund village, you will reach the ferry pier – there, a ferry will take you (along with your vehicle) across the Hardanger fjord. Then, you will continue your way through a serpentine road until you will arrive to the Folgefonna National Park, which is a home to the Norway’s 3rd-largest glacier. There, you will have around 30 minutes of free time, before actually returning to the coast of Hardanger fjord. Then, you will have a ferry trip back and, after it, drive back to Bergen, while enjoying one of the most beautiful mountain roads in this region.
