Hardanger Fjord, Bergen
(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We were looking for a fjord to visit by car within easy driving distance of Bergen. This is it! Take Highway 7 from the E-16 for a very scenic trip. 
  • There are no words, only going to the site. It's Fabulous! Go well wrapped up, namely protecting well the head and neck as the boat trip can be a surprise cold enough! Take a good video camera.
