Norwegian Scenic Route - Hardanger


This self-drive short break takes you through some of the most magnificent landscapes and visits some of the best architecture Norway has to offer, combined with nights spent at some of Norway's most charming hotels.  Relish the wonderful hospitality, history and local flavours.

The short break starts in Lofthus and if you drive through Hardangervidda from the east you get wonderful views of the Hardanger bridge, which opened on 17 August 2013. This bridge is 1,380 metres long and is one of the world's longest suspension bridges, and the longest in Norway.

The Norwegian Scenic Route Hardanger crosses an area of outstanding natural beauty which is packed with cultural monuments. People have visited Hardanger for more than a century to delight in the mountains, fjord, waterfalls and glaciers. Hardanger is also home to Hotel Ullensvang, a hotel owned and run by the same family for five generations.

On the second day, you continue along the Norwegian Scenic Route Hardanger then cross the fjord by ferry to Kinsarvik to check in to the traditional Utne Hotel on this charming self-drive short break. Utne Hotel dates back to 1722 and is one of the oldest hotels in Norway to remain open in the same building.

Driving distance from Lofthus to Utne: 12 km + ferry driving time: approx 15 minutes.

On the third day we suggest that you drive along the scenic route to Jondal and make a rest-stop at Hereiane where you can see polished rocks in large areas. From Jonal you take the ferry to Tørvikbygd and continue to Norheimsund and Bergen or to Kvanndal where you make another rest-stop at Steinstøberget. The rest area at Steinstøberget occupies an idyllic spot with a view over the Hardangerfjord and the Folgefonna glacier.

From Granvin we recommend a detour to Skjervsfossen with its twin falls plunging out from a height of 150 metres. Skjervsfossen offers a carefully organised network of paths, stairs, viewpoints, rest areas, picnic areas and parking facilities. If you travel towards Bergen we suggest a stop at Steindalsfossen. The Steindalsfossen waterfall is far from being Norway’s highest, but it is quite special all the same. Here you can walk behind the cascade without getting wet. The waterfall is at its fullest and most spectacular in May–June when the snow is melting.

  • 2 nights accommodation in standard room.
  • 2 buffet breakfasts.
  • One 3- course set menu without beverage.
