Norwegian Nature Centre
Interacitve stations and immersive exhibits focusing on culture, nature and the environment make up the attractions at the Norwegian Nature Centre in Hardanger. There is also a state of the art cinema showing a short movie by Norwegian filmmaker Ivo Caprino taking showcasing the unrivalled lanscape of the Norwegian fjords with mountains, lakes, glaciers and waterfalls.
Vøringsfossen waterfall is a spectacular sight to behold. When the bus stops here you have the chance to make the short walk to the fenced viewing platform. As you make your way up, the landscape opens up before you. Once at the top, take a minute to really appreciate the view. Step forward (if you dare!) and watch the raging water hit the valley below.
If Sognefjord is the King of the fjords then Hardangerfjord is the Queen. Stretching for 179 km, it is the second largest fjord in Norway and the fourth largest in the world.
