Take a fjord cruise along the 179 km Hardangerfjord, also known as the “Queen of the Fjords”. The trip starts with bus from Bergen busstation at 07:25 to Norheimsund. There you continue with the boat at 09: from from Norheimsund quay and takes you deep into the fjord, to the village of Kinsarvik. Here you will have approx 6,5 hours to spend before you return.
Our recomandation is to hike up to Husedalen , one of the most famous and spectacular hikes in Hardanger. Fours stunning waterfalls are close to each other on this hiking trail from Kinsarvik up to the Hardangervidda mountain platoue. The trails are suitable for all ages, but some parts of the might be more steep the others- but you also have a graval road that is steep , but easier to access. This takes you almost to the third waterfall.
Depeding on how fast you walk, it is possible to reach the fourth waterfall and get back in time to the boat departs. No matter how far you go, there will be some incredible sights and views to enjoy.
There is also other things to do in Kinarvik, like Mikkelparken- an amusement park for younger kids, Go Kart, cafeterias, camping etc.
