You can’t visit Eidfjord without experiencing The Norwegian Nature Centre Hardanger and the mighty Vøringsfossen waterfall. Join us on an audio-guided hop off bus tour! The bus leaves from Eidfjord outside the tourist information centre. It’s definitely the best way to see two of the most popular attractions in Hardangerfjord.
Eidfjord is a short bus journey from Hardangervidda mountain plateau. This is Norway’s largest national park- and it’s an impressive place. As we drive through steep mountainsides you’ll be wowed by high peaks, waterfalls and mountain farms. In no time at all, you’ll arrive at the first stop, The Norwegian Nature Centre Hardanger. This national park centre celebrates Norwegian nature, climate and environment through a range of interactive exhibits. Entry to the centre is included in the price of your ticket.
After an informative stop at The Norwegian Nature Centre, it’s time to hop on and hop off the bus at Vøringsfossen waterfall. Cameras at the ready, you’re about to see something magnificent. With a dramatic fall of 182 metres, the beautiful Vøringsfossen is hard to put into words. You can see just how spectacular it is by taking the short walk from the bus to the viewing platform. There you’ll see the enchanting waterfall surging from Hardangervidda plateau down into the winding Måbødalen valley.
After you’ve experienced The Norwegian Nature Centre and Vøringsfossen waterfall, the bus will take you back to Eidfjord. If you have time, there’s plenty of things to do and see in Eidfjord. Go and see the Jakob Church, which dates back to 1309.
