Our trip to the scenic Hardangerfjord (part 3)


After wandering around the Eidfjord somewhere around 2.5 hours, we got back on the boat and sailed on. While impressed by the stunning views, we did not notice that approached the coast of the village of Lofthus.

Lofthus tourist attractions 

Firstly, Lofthus is the best place to make super photos of the Folgefonna glacier.

Secondly, there is the medieval Ullensvang Churh built in the 13th century.

Thirdly, fans of waterfalls tend to go there because of the beautiful Skrikjofossen waterfall located about 3,5 km of Lofthus.

And finally, Lofthus is well-known for Hotel Ullesvang where Edvard Grieg stayed for many summers. During one of his visits there, the great composer wrote the famous play “Spring”. By the way, favorite gazebo of the composer have been preserved and stands in the garden.




The end point of our exploring the fjords – sailing to Norheimsund. 


Some facts about Norheimsund

It is the municipal administrative centre, 80 km from Bergen. In terms of population there is a little more than 2000 people. This town began to be built in the middle of the XIX century after the construction of the Bergen Railway.

There you can see Steinsdalsfossen waterfall with the height/length of the stream 50 m.

In July, 1889, Kaiser Wilhelm II visited these places and was pleasantly surprised with warm weather - +23°C. Subsequently, he repeatedly visited the local waterfall. However, prior to 1914. Afterwards he couldn’t think about the beauty of Norwegian nature.



Goodbye, fjords! A few steps from the pier we boarded the bus and drove to Bergen.
