This spectacular adventure will take you by boat exploring the sensational scenery on the way to one of the longest Fjords in the world! That is the beautiful Fjord Hardanger. Which is an immense 179km long,900 metres at its deepest and the third-longest in the world! A must-see if you’re visiting Norway.

The region of Hardangerfjord

Hardangerfjord has been a popular haunt for tourists since the 19th century! Why? Because in this region, there are vast amounts of mesmerising nature to enjoy from rumbling breathtaking waterfalls to blossoming apple orchards. A wildlife lovers dream.Alongside its incredible nature, it’s home to a wonderfully rich cultural heritage. Famous Norwegian outfits originate from here such as the traditional Hardanger folk costume and Hardanger embroidery which are recognised as national symbols.

You may wonder where Norway gets most of their fruit? Well, 40% of its fruit is grown in the Hardangerfjord region especially apples, pears, sweet cherries and plums. That says something about the fertile environment of the Hardangerfjord.


Just a hike away from Hardangerfjord is magnificent rock formation Trolltunga (meaning the Tonge of the Troll). The reason behind its name is that the rocks extend out at right angles to the mountainside. Similar to a troll’s tongue carved into stone. It is arguably the most breathtaking cliff in Norway and is about 1,100 metres above sea level. In the past years, it’s gained a lot of recognition across the world.  This legendary rock formation has been here for thousands of years worn by the ice age yet still stands with great beauty today.

You can’t visit Norway and miss out on a trip here! You have to get active in Trolltunga if you want to experience a true Norwegian adventure. 

Did you know? During 2010, 800 people visited Trolltunga. Next, in 2016, 80,000 people visited! Even though there is a great difference in those figures, it’s still been a struggle for the local community. The best way to help this economy is by expanding your stay and use the facilities in Trolltunga, for example, make use of their guided services.

Don’t worry, by going on a trip with us at ETP we make sure of this by hiring local guides. We want to give back to the local economy.
