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.
