About Kvinnherad

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 professional guides. 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 that the Hardangerfjord-region has to offer.
