Full description
Join an adrenaline-filled RIB boat tour of the Hardangerfjord. Learn about the fjord and its history from your expert guide. Keep your camera handy to snap photos of the unique scenery and wildlife. Meet in the lobby of the Hardangerfjord Hotel for a fun-filled adventure out on the fjords. After the safety briefing, you’ll have time to get kitted out before boarding the boat. Speed across the Hardangerfjord to the old trading town of Herandsholmen. Learn about the fjord and the people who lived at the fjord farms from your driver and guide. See the stunning island of Kvamsøy before heading north to enter Fyksesund, the only arm of the Hardangerfjord that cannot be accessed via road. The last 5 km runs between steep mountains to the roadless old village of Botnen. During several stops close to land, you will be able to admire the fjord's beautiful scenery, nature, and life on its shores. If you’re lucky, you may see porpoises swimming beside the speed boat so have your camera at the ready. After this incredible experience, return to dry land in Øystese.

    Despite the rain one of the highlights of our holiday! It's fantastic how close you get to different waterfalls and of course the view, even when it rains, is phenomenal. We even saw porpoises up close. Good and clear explanation about the environment from the friendly captain. Highly recommended!
