Autumn in Hardanger is spectacular! As it is less crowded you get to explore Hardanger almost all by yourself. Check out this travel itinerary to experience some of the best autumn in Hardanger has to offer.


Day 1: Drive to Skjeggedal and hike to Trolltunga, one of Norway's most spectacular rock formations. Surrounded by majestic nature, the hike to Trolltunga is an experience itself, but the hike is even better together with a guide. A guided tour is not only a safe journey through the mountains, but also offers a packed adventure with hidden gems along the way, a relaxed atmosphere, and interesting facts about Trolltunga and the surrounding areas. Both Trolltunga Active and Trolltunga Adventures offer guided day hikes and overnight hikes.


Day 2: Drive to Eidfjord and stay at the fantastic Vøringfoss hotel. Wake up to panoramic views of mountains and fjords. Just a stone's throw away are unique places such as Kjeåsen mountain farm, Vøringsfossen, and Hardangervidda nasjonalpark. Vøringfoss hotel is more than just a hotel. Its amazing hosts and comfortable facilities make it a popular place to stay. With just a few minutes' walk down to the fjord, it's no wonder visitors enjoy their stay here.


7 km from Vøringfoss hotel, in Øvre Eidfjord, lies Norwegian Nature Center. The Norwegian Nature Center is a modern experience center for Norwegian nature, climate, and environment, where both adults and children can experience and learn more about geology, climate, and plant and animal life in Norway - conveyed in a new and exciting way! The Nature Center is also known for the new panoramic film "Norge mitt land - Fjord, Mountain, Waterfall, and Hardangervidda," which feels like an helicopter ride into the beautiful landscape shown on one of Europe's largest panoramic screens - 21 meters long and 4 meters high!

Day 3: Drive to Ulvik and stay at the historic Brakanes hotel. Originally opened as a shuttle station in the late 1800s, Brakanes hotel has a rich history, and with views of mountains, fjords, and fruit orchards, it's easy to relax and find peace. From Brakanes hotel, it's just a short walk to the popular fruit and cider route, a hike through award-winning fruit and cider farms. The farms offer tours with tastings, and perhaps you'll also buy some local products from the farm shop? End the day with dinner at "Draumen" restaurant at Brakanes hotel and a relaxing soak in the hot tub by the fjord.
