KVINNHERAD

Š Rosendal natur

Kvinnherad - the municipality that takes you from the sea and into the Hardangerfjord. With a daily fast ferry route between Bergen and Rosendal, a visit to Kvinnherad is a great way to experience the journey from the sea to the Hardangerfjord. The open and dramatic coastal landscape will be replaced by inland fjords with steep mountains. The Rosendal alps stand out as the most spectacular peaks surrounding the charming village of Rosendal. Bondhusvatnet and Bondhusbrea are also genuinely spectacular, and there are great hiking trails here as well as several other places in the municipality. The Folgefonna National park is part of the municipality and you can experience the blue ice only an hour drive from the fjord with competent guide companies. If you dedicate a trip to Kvinnherad, one cannot help but visit the Baroniet Rosendal. The manor house from the year 1665 is known for its beautiful landscape park and rich cultural program. And once we first talk about historical buildings, Halsnøy monastery from the year 1163 is difficult not to mention, located on the beautiful Halsnøy island far out in the Hardangerfjord. With beautiful contrasts in the landscape, majestic mountains, historic castles and monasteries, Kvinnherad has some of the most pristine nature and attractions the Hardangerfjord-region has to offer. Welcome to Kvinnherad!

ULLENSVANG

The contrasts are enormous in Ullensvang municipality, which includes the areas of Ullensvang, Odda and Jondal. The distance between significant natural and cultural experiences is short. In Sørfjorden, you will find Norway’s perhaps largest orchard. The cider and fruit farms lie close to each other in between hundreds of thousands of apple, sweet cherry, plum and pear trees. It is also an ideal place if you want to experience the rich cultural history of Hardanger. In Odda, the only city in Hardanger, they have long tourism and industry traditions, and it is not without reason that increasingly more people are visiting the charming town. In recent years, the rock formation and the hiking destination Trolltunga have made Odda and Ullensvang one of the most popular travel destinations in Norway. The same goes for the Folgefonna glacier. The 19-kilometer-long road (Glacier Road) from the fjord edge in Jondal and up to the top is an experience in itself. There are activities on the glacier from April to October. In addition to the national icon Trolltunga, Ullensvang also has excellent hikes such as Queen’s Trail, Husedalen and Buardalen. One good tip is to drive along the Norwegian Scenic Route Hardanger. It covers a large part of Ullensvang and allows you to get close to the unique landscape the municipality has to offer. Welcome to Ullensvang!
