Hardangerfjordis without doubt one of Norway's favorite fjords, complemented by the surrounding mountains beautifully reflected in the serene waters. Departing from the ship in Bergen, you will pass the Fortress of Bergenhus, King Hakon's Hall and the Rosenkrantz Tower. Watch for the gabled buildings of the Hanseatic period and the fish market.

The scenery quickly changes as you leave the city behind. Passing through the community of Os, you will cross Fusafjord by ferry. Enjoy the lovely views across Bjørnefjord with islands and snow-capped mountains in the distance. Venjaneset, on the opposite side, is the first of many small communities you will see, complete with typical west coast scenery. You will soon reach the tiny wooden church at Holdhus, a distinctive landmark dating back to the days of the old stave churches.

At Mundheim, the road links up with the Hardangerfjord. Norwegians call this the Queen of the Fjords, and you'll understand why during the one-hour drive along its regal shores with views to the majestic mountains on the opposite side. On a clear day, you can glimpse the Folgefonna Glacier, the third largest in Norway.

Along the way, break for a Norwegian buffet lunch with hot and cold dishes, desserts and coffee. You'll also stop at the Steinsdal Waterfall for the thrill of walking under the falls without getting wet, then ascend the Tokagjel Gorge via a series tunnels before reaching the Kvamskogen mountain plateau. This is a popular recreation and winter ski resort area for the people of Bergen. Before returning to the city, you will pass the largest island on Norway's west coast, Oster Island.

Please note: This tour involves approximately 125 miles of scenic driving. Restroom facilities are limited before and after lunch. Tour operates subject to meeting a minimum number of participants.
