Cruising the waves with Ulvik waterskiing-club
Crash through the waves on waterskis or a tube with Ulvik waterski-club and feel the rush of adrenaline among the lofty waves. Have yourself a high-speed encounter with the fjord from the clubhouse in Holmen and feel the wind blow through your hair as you cut across the crystal-clear fjord. Perfect for thrill-seeking tots and teens! For more information on run-times, please see https://www.facebook.com/groups/UlvikVassSki/
Hit up the beach
For those looking for a more laidback time by the fjord, Holmen is the perfect option. The area features a beachline, boat dock and diving board for the whole family to enjoy. If you prefer to keep dry, you can play a round of volleyball in the sand field or have yourselves a soccer match on the grass field. Energizers looking to break a proper sweat can do a couple of laps around the racetrack before hopping into the fjord for a refreshing swim.
Paddling on the fjord
If the family is looking to spend some time above water, rather than in it, kayaking is the perfect fit. Glide onto the calm fjord with B-Active’s beginner-friendly kayaks and see where the current takes you. Perhaps you want to paddle across the fjord for a swim in Holmen? What about having lunch at the little island Snauholmen? The destination is in your hands (and oars). For more information, please visit https://www.bactivecenter.com/no
Hikes in the area
High mountains and deep valleys make for wonderful sensory play for tots and teens. Listen to the sheep bleat in the pasture areas, catch a whiff of the sweet scent of apple-blossoms and witness the colorful palette of Ulvik’s nature! For those looking to hike with a stroller, we recommend the trail along the Tysso River, Åsen and Solsæ lake. Little feet keen on treading a forest track will enjoy the track Jobykse/Liavegen. Maybe you’ll encounter the cows on the way back to the starting point? For more information, please see https://www.hardangerfjord.com/en/ulvik/attractions/hikes-in-ulvik-970633
