From Bergen: Private Trip to Hardangerfjord

1. From Bergen: Private Trip to Hardangerfjord

Begin your private tour with hotel or port pickup in Bergen, and travel west via Highway 7, one of Norway’s scenic tourist roads, to Hardangerfjord. En route, hear about the region’s history and nature from your driver-guide, and take in views of mountain pastures, deep valleys and pretty villages. Make photo stops at the waterfalls of Fossen Bratte and Steinsdalsfossen. Continue to Hardangerfjord and appreciate the full scale of the mountain-framed inlet as you drive toward the upper end. Then, venture across the Hardangerfjord Bridge, one of the world’s longest suspension bridges, absorbing the incredible surrounding scenery. On the other side, pass through the town of Eidfjord and stop in Øvre Eidfjord, a tiny village beautifully set beneath the Hardangervidda mountain plateau. Visit the Hardangervidda Nature Centre (own expense), a cutting-edge museum dedicated to the region’s nature and wildlife. Explore the dioramas and interactive exhibits covering everything from glaciers to zoology, and watch the panoramic film on Hardangervidda and Hardangerfjord — an immersive journey through the area's waterfalls, canyons and glaciers. Next, head to a cozy restaurant specializing in authentic Norwegian cuisine. Enjoy lunch here (own expense) before continuing to Vøringfossen, Norway’s biggest waterfall. Enjoy the views of this precipitous fall, whose waters plunge 597 feet (182 meters) from the Hardangervidda plateau into a narrow valley. Finally, take a different route back to Bergen, where your tour ends at the start point.
