Hardanger Fjord, Bergen

#3 of 10 in Parks in Bergen
Water Body Nature / Park
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. Use our Bergen vacation route planner to add Hardanger Fjord and other attractions to your Bergen vacation plans.

  • The trip that we had booked took 3 hours. Very nice and certainly because we had good weather. The most beautiful is the end of the trip with great waterfalls and views. However, the website does not have the ability to buy a family ticket while that does exist. This saves a NOK1000 for a family with 4 kids.

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.
