The beautiful village of Eidfjord is in the magnificent Hardangerfjord region. Here the boat will dock for three hours. Come with us on our popular sightseeing bus tour included in the price.

Sights on the trip
If Sognefjord is the King of the fjords then Hardangerfjord is the Queen. Stretching for 179 km, it is the second largest fjord in Norway and the fourth largest in the world. Surrounded by towering cliffs, snow-capped mountains and blossoming fruit trees, this part of Norway is a masterpiece of nature.
Eidfjord is situated at the end of the Eid Fjord, an inner branch of the large and beautiful Hardangerfjord. The town is known for being a place where you can experience real local food mixed with culture and traditions, and hospitable people. Just a short distance away is Vøringsfoss Waterfall and the Hardangervidda Nature Centre.
Stop what you’re doing and look up! You are about to see another highlight of the trip, Folgefonna. From the boat you can admire the snowy peaks of one of Norway’s biggest glaciers. It’s no surprise that Folgefonna National Park is a popular location for glacier hiking. So If you’re feeling brave, check out our guided tour high above the fjord.
The Hardanger Bridge
As the boat cruises towards Eidfjord, you’ll come across the awe-inspiring Hardanger Bridge. At 1380 metres long it is the longest tunnel to tunnel suspension bridge in the world. The Hardangerfjord cruise sails underneath this impressive construction. It’s certainly a photo opportunity not to be missed, so grab your camera and snap the Hardanger Bridge in all its glory.
Vøringsfossen waterfall is a spectacular sight to behold. When the bus stops here you have the chance to make the short walk to the fenced viewing platform. As you make your way up, the landscape opens up before you. Once at the top, take a minute to really appreciate the view. Step forward (if you dare!) and watch the raging water hit the valley below.
