Exploring the Hardanger fjord Region.

For those looking for a sea kayak tour in the Hardangerfjord , it is worth knowing that Hardanger has many more miles of coast than any other fjords in the region of Hordaland. In the spring the air is filled with the magnificent scents of apple blossom.

450.000 fruit trees.

has for more than a century been a tempting destination for travellers from all over
the world.
