Get up close and personal with the Norwegian salmon. Learn about aquaculture in Hardanger and experience for yourself how salmon is farmed in the Hardangerfjord.

The Norwegian Salmon experience starts at Hardanger Aqua Center (Hardanger Akvasenter) in Øystese. A new and interactive exhibition shows the importance of the fjord for the Hardanger region and provides insight into modern salmon production.

After learning the basics about fish farming, the tour continues by RIB-boat to a fish farm in full production in the Hardangerfjord. 

Explore the facility on your own and see how salmon are farmed. Through underwater cameras, you also get to see how the fish are doing. The fish farm was Norway's first display facility for aquaculture when it opened in 2007. It is beautifully located offering panoramic views of the Hardangerfjord and the Folgefonna Glacier.
