  • Hardangerfjord
  • Rosendal
  • Baroniet Rosendal
  • Folgefonna National Park

Rosendal is an ideal base for exploring a dramatic and beautiful landscape studded with fjords, mountains, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. You can also relish the local cuisine, which has a strong focus on game and seafood, as well as mutton dishes like smoked ribs and lamb’s head.

The Folgefonna National Park, a glacial area covering more than 200 square kilometers and almost 400 meters at its thickest, is also nearby. From the summit of the glacier the spectacular view spans Hardangervidda plateau to the east, the North Sea to the west and the Rosendal Alps to the south. Wild reindeer herds are a common sight in the surrounding mountains and on the Hardangervidda.

The final leg of the voyage takes us to Bergen for a half-day in Norway’s “second city”. An outpost on the west coast, Bergen is known for its history of international trade and ability to withstand one of the wettest climates in Europe. Surrounded by islands and mountains, Bergen is a World Heritage site, an international hub for aquacultureshipping, the offshore industry and subsea technology, in addition to being Norway’s busiest port.

And why not arrive a day before departure, to explore the cosmopolitan oil capital of Stavanger, with its beautiful fjords, mountains, and long, white beaches, not to mention Norway’s best surfing conditions along the beaches at Jæren.
