On this one of a kind tour we take you through the magnificent landscapes of Hardanger. Explore the Hardangerfjord, Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, and Vøringsfossen waterfall.

Along the way we travel through the fruit orchards and small villages in Hardanger. Not only will you be seeing the famous Vøringsfossen, but also the beautiful Steinsdalfossen in Norheimsund. The perfect day trip for a memorable and breathtaking tour in Western Norway. 

Description:

The tour starts by minibus at the Tourist Information in Bergen. We will drive 1 hour south-eastwards to the small village of Bjørkheim where we stop at a cafeteria beside a beautiful fjord. On our way to Hardanger we pass over a hilly area where many locals have their holiday cabins. As soon as we enter the Hardanger region we will see one of Norway's most visited waterfalls, Steinsdalsfossen in Norheimsund. It is famous for the possibility of walking behind the waterfall without becoming wet. This is the perfect spot to take the first photos of the day! 

Further on, we will drive the road between Norheimsund and Granvin, which is a part of the Hardanger National Scenic Route. Hardanger is as beautiful as a postcard, and almost everywhere you look you will see the fjord, waterfalls and fruit orchards. In the fruit season, we will stop at a local farm shop, selling fruit which has been picked the same morning. In late spring, you may see the fruit trees in full bloom (May), and in autumn you can see the beautiful autumn colours. In winter and early spring, you will see snow-capped mountains everywhere.

Next up is the famous Hardanger Bridge. On our way past the big mountains, we will drive through the Vallavik Tunnel (8km), which leads us onto Norway's longest suspension bridge, the "Hardangerbrua". The view across this bridge is just breathtaking.

As we continue our journey, we drive though the scenic fjord landscape, and pass the serene Eidfjord Lake just before arriving at Upper Eidfjord. At the Norwegain Nature Center in Upper Eidfjord we stop for lunch. Here you can purchase hot meals at affordable norwegian prices. 

This tour saves the best for the last, with a panoramic view of Norway's most famous waterfall Vøringsfossen. It has a water fall of 182 meters from the Hardangervidda plateau into the Måbødalen valley. You will view the majestic waterfall from viewing platforms above Vøringsfossen, and from the bridge crossing the waterfall canyon.

We will take another route on our return to Bergen, driving through Voss municipality, so you may experience even more on this tour. Voss is surrounded by snow-capped mountains, forests, lakes and fast-flowing whitewater rivers. This has led to its development as a notable center of skiing, water sports, skydiving, paragliding and other adventure sports. The minibus will make a stop here before we head back to the tourist information in Bergen for arrival.
