Hike on Folgefonna Glacier
A visit to this region is not complete without experiencing the vast and beautiful Folgefonna Glacier. Hike to the Buer glacier, walking on blue ice and making a spectacular river crossing en route. On the glacier you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to ice climb inside the crevasses. The minimum age to join this hike is 15 years. For younger travellers (from 8 years old), there is an easier glacier trip to Juklavass glacier which starts from Jondal - a summer ski resort.
Fjord sea kayaking
Join your guide for a full day or half day kayaking tour. As you pick up the basics of kayaking or hone your technique, enjoy breath-taking sights of mountains and fjord. The kayaking takes place on the Eidfjord, and ventures into the Simadalsfjord, the innermost part of the Hardangerfjord. The narrow fjord and steep mountains either side create a dizzying thrill from your kayak. You may even spot some wildlife such as whales, seals and sea eagles. During the full day trip, a barbeque wilderness lunch is included.
White Water Rafting
The River Bjoreio offers rapids and turns that provide an adrenalin-fuelled experience for the family. Learn how to raft along the river during a two hour excursion. The trip is suitable for children 7 years and above. Wetsuits and all necessary safety equipment and guidance are provided.
Canoe rental on Hardangerfjord
Enjoy a leisurely few hours canoeing on Hardangerfjord or lake Eidfjordvatnet. The stable canoes are perfect for enjoying a day or afternoon exploring at your own pace.
