Explore the Hardangerfjord - "Travel like the locals"
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
When you order this round trip - you get one single ticket for all the transport during the day!
Trips are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables.
Travel along the famous Hardangerfjord and on the Norwegian Scenic Route of Hardanger. Enjoy the views from the bus as it passes fjords, mountains and waterfalls, and the crossing of the Hardanger Bridge, which is among the longest suspension bridge in the world.
Odda, a scenic place set by the fjord, will be your first stop on your travel. Stretch your legs and choose from a variety of activities, such as a culture walk or a hike along the river. Visit the Tourist Information.
Rosendal is a village surrounded by majestic mountains. Visit the Folgefonna Centre, a visitor centre which offers interactive exhibitions of the National Park. Baroniet Rosendal, the smallest “palace” in Scandinavia, is also worth exploring.
A bus will take you from Rosendal to Årsnes, then a ferry crossing to Gjermundshamn, and a rest at Mundheim (toilet facilities). Enjoy the peace and quiet. The last leg goes through the town of Norheimsund, and along the idyllic Hardangerfjord towards Voss.
