Odda - Kinsarvik - Utne - Odda.
On this roundtrip of the Southernmost part of the Hardangerfjord, called Sørfjorden in Norwegian, you will experience the very essence of what Hardanger has to offer.
The journey from Odda to Kinsarvik will take you from industrial heritage surrounded by mountains and National Parks to the orchards of the Hardangerfjord. As you travel along the narrow roads and pass through one tunnel after another, you will see fruit orchards creating patterns in the landscape and fruit farms nestled on every hillside.
Kinsarvik offers places to eat, shops, short walks and a marina, as well as a beach lagoon.
Walk onboard the car ferry that will take you across the fjord to Utne. The car ferry has a cafeteria and restrooms. Enjoy the beautiful crossing.
Utne has a folk museum with a souvenir shop and a hearty cafeteria (open every day 10:00 - 17:00 between 02 May - 01 September, and Monday - Friday 10:00 - 15:00 non-season). We also recommend a stop at the quaint Utne Hotel for cake and world famous cider. If you have time, add a walk to your agenda.
As you travel back from Utne towards Odda, you will have views towards the Hardangervidda National Park on your left, knowing that the Folgefonna National Park is up there to your right. If you are lucky, you might spot porpoises playfully jumping up from the fjord or a mighty eagle looking for prey. You will also pass by some of the best cider farms in Norway.

About our trips
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
Trips are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the trip is bookable.
