Round trip to Folgefonna National Park - "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 bridges in the world.
The round trip starts in Voss. Odda, a scenic place surrounded 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.
A fantastic hike awaits you at Sundal, taking you to through Bondhusdalen valley and Folgefonna National Park. You will find information boards at the starting point of the hike, situated 500 metres from the bus stop. Walk on the gravel road and enjoy the spectacular nature (the hike can also be done in winter, unless there is too much snow).
A bus returns to Odda after the hike. The travel continues along the fjord until you reach Utne, an idyllic town right at the Hardangerfjord. On the last leg you will be transported by ferry to Kvanndal, and a bus ride back to Voss.
