4.7
#3 of 16 in Parks in Bergen
Known as the Orchard of Norway, Hardanger Fjord is the world's third-longest fjord, offering tourist routes along glaciers, waterfalls, and one of the largest mountain highlands in Europe. The fjord stretches 179 km (111 mi) from the Atlantic Ocean into the forested hills of the mainland. Cruise along the scenic villages nestled at the foot of the mountains, or go walking on a glacier. Adventure lovers can take a ride with a kayak on the Eidfjord--one of the fjord's arms. Other attractions include a fish farm, cider factory, and living history museum focused on the construction and preservation of boats. Also look out for the Barony in Rosendal, Scandinavia's tiniest "palace" renowned for its Renaissance garden.

  • Cool 48F drizzly morning to start. We were able to grab the front right side seating(two seats).. There was no one besides us so it was easy to spread out and relax. Of course the scenery was not clea...  more »
  • Taking the boat/raft is obligated to go through all the fjordes, a more magnificent than others. It's worth going in groups because the tickets are cheaper and the guides know exactly where to take tourists.

  • This is a beautiful trip. I love waterfalls and they were everywhere. Sometimes you would see more than 10 at one time.  more »

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
