The stunning municipality of Eidsfjord is situated in the east of Hordaland, next to Eidfjorden which is the innermost part of Hardangerfjorden. Hardangerfjorden is 114 miles long and the second-longest fjord in Norway. The innermost part of Eidfjorden is Simadalsfjorden, surrounded by mountains and magnificent nature.
Norway's largest hydropower plant, Vøringsfossen, with its 597-foot free fall is situated in Eidsfjord, immediately next to Riksvei 7 and is one of Norway's most visited tourist attractions. Visit Simadalen and walk up from the road to Sima Power Plant for a tour before taking the steep path for around an hour and a half until you reach Kjeåsen, also known as "the world's most inaccessible farm". Authors have written books and NRK has produced TV shows about what has become a tourist attraction. The farm has been inhabited since the 1600s but is no longer in operation.
If you really want to feel at one with nature, you should head for Hardangerjøkulen. This is Norway's sixth largest mainland glacier and the majority of the glacier is situated in Eidsfjord. The highest peak is 6112 feet above sea level. A scene from the Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back was filmed in Midtdalen, as the ice planet "Hoth".
If you need more speed and excitement in your holidays, you should try your hand at river paddling, glacier walking, rafting and kayaking at sea. Or perhaps you will be tempted by a waterfall jump! Activities are available all year round and guarantee that you will experience an adrenaline rush!
A weekend trip to Eidsfjord offers magnificent nature even from the bus window. You can fly there from the UK via Oslo Airport, Gardermoen or Bergen Airport, Flesland, travel on across the unique Hardangervidda plateau and over the Hardangerbrua bridge.
You simply have not lived before you have observed the reflections on stunning Hardangerfjorden, the majestic mountains or crossed one of the glaciers in Norway. A trip to Eidsfjord could be exactly what you need!
