In the municipality of Kvinnherad, which is located where the sea becomes a fjord, the contrasts are impressive. By taking the Rødne boat from Bergen to Rosendal, you will experience this remarkable transition from sea to fjord at close range. See how the open and dramatic coastal landscape merges into the so-called Rosendal Alps, a landscape characterized by high, steep mountains. Melderskin, Gygrastolen, and Ulvanosa are particularly striking peaks that you will notice.
The glacier lake Bondhusvatnet, near Sundal, and the Bondhus glacier are also impressive and worth a visit. There are beautiful hiking trails both here and in other parts of Kvinnherad. Regardless of whether you are planning longer or shorter hikes, the alternatives are many. Should you prefer to explore the area by bike or by boat on lake Myrdalsvatnet, you can rent equipment from the tourist information in Rosendal.
