The Norwegian Scenic Routes are 18 selected roads through the most beautiful Norwegian nature. Two of these routes run through Hardanger, the Norwegian Scenic Route Hardanger, and the Norwegian Scenic Route Hardangervidda.

The Norwegian Scenic Route Hardangervidda takes you from the high mountain plateau Hardangervidda, at 1250 meters, to the shore of the Hardangerfjord. The 67-kilometer long route runs between Haugastøl and Eidfjord (road 7) and leads partly through the Hardangervidda National Park. The drive offers impressive scenic contrasts, and you should take enough time to enjoy all impressions along the way. The main attraction along the Norwegian Scenic Route Hardangervidda is the Vøringsfossen waterfall. You may add an overnight stay en route - there is a lot more to discover! 

Along the Norwegian Scenic Routes, you will find excellent rest areas that have been constructed with a focus on the combination of landscape and architecture. The area around the Vøringsfossen waterfall is one of the most spectacular. Here you can experience the impressive waterfall from one of the many viewpoints along the cliff. If you are not afraid of heights, you should also test the bridge over the waterfall canyon. Another way to explore Vøringsfossen up close is the hiking trail in the waterfall valley.
