The Hardangerfjord

One of the world’s longest fjords

In the summertime we sail in the mighty Hardangerfjord in Western Norway. The boat trip is popularly referred to as the cider boat.

Here you can choose to take the trip as a pure fjord cruise or combine it with cider tasting and visit the local cider producers along the way.

The views along the coastal route are magnificent, and the stories from the local fruit farmers in Hardanger are sure to find a special place in your heart.
