NORWAY TRIP WITH HARDANGER FJORD 

This roundtrip tour from Bergen is a great way to see the famous Hardangerfjord, Norway’s 2nd largest fjord.

Day 1  : Bergen

Arrive in  Bergen and check in to your centrally located hotel. If you have time, a short walk from your hotel takes you to the Bryggen wharf, where you find the Fish & Flower market. Pick up some smoked salmon or fresh shrimp from the fjord for a snack. On a clear day we suggest you take the Fløien funicular to the top of Fløien mountan for a panoramic view of the city. You can walk back down or take the funicular back. Stroll along Bryggen to admire the old wooden Hanseatic buildings, on Unesco’s World Heritage list. Overnight in Bergen

Day 2  : Bergen – Ulvik

After breakfast, take a short 10 minute walk to the rail station. Your train departs Bergen and follows the fjord and many small villages before it reaches Voss, nestled by the lake and surrounded by mountains. Here you  change from train to bus. The bus departs from the train station, and will take you through farm country, passing by waterfalls and descending through hairpin turns before reaching the town of Ulvik, known as the “pearl of the Hardangerfjord”. You are now in Norway’s largest fruit growing area.  It is absolutely stunning in the spring, with all the apple and cherry blossoms. Check in to your hotel by the fjord, dinner included. Overnight and dinner in Ulvik

Day 3  : Ulvik – Eidfjord - Bergen

After breakfast walk the short distance to the pier and board the boat which will take you  out the narrow Ulvikfjord and on to the even narrower Eidfjord,  these fjords are the innermost arms of the Hardangerfjord. When you arrive at the small town of Eidfjord you will transfer from the boat to a bus which takes you on a sightseeing trip up to the famous Vøringsfossen waterfall, for a close-up view of this amazing waterfall. Back in Eidfjord, board your boat and cruise out the fjord to the main arm of the Hardangerfjord, passing under the newly built Hardangerfjord Bridge, which crosses the fjord.  Arrive in Norheimsund where you board the bus which takes you over the Kvamskogen ski area , then descends into a narrow canyon before arriving back in Bergen. Overnight at your hotel in Bergen.

Day 4  : Bergen

After breakfast, check out of your hotel . End of tour.
