Steinsdalsfossen and Hardangertun

Steinsdalsfossen, a remarkable 50m high waterfall is one of Norway’s most famous (and most-visited) sights. Your group will get the chance to walk behind the cascading waterfall whilst staying completely dry – a fantastic photo opportunity! Continue along the path to the vantage point that overlooks picturesque Norheimsund and the entire Steinsdalen valley.

Head to your home for the next few days – Hardangertun Holiday Park located in the village of Kinsarvik, at the heart of Hardangerfjord and ideally located midway between the Hardangervidda and Folgefonna National Parks.



Husedalen hike

The route through Husedalen is known as “the Valley of Waterfalls” and is one of the most beautiful hikes in all of Norway. The region is filled with spectacular viewpoints, including four impressive waterfalls: Tveitafossen, Nykkjesøyfossen, Nyastølsfossen, and Søtefossen. The Husedalen Valley offers spectacular natural landscapes, including towering cliffs, deep gorges, and serene forests, offering plenty of opportunities to capture beautiful photos. If the scenery isn’t entertaining enough, your professional guide will tell stories and provide information about local nature and history as you go. You will stop for breaks and a packed lunch en route, to ensure you’re well fuelled.



Sima Hydropower Plant, Norwegian Nature Center, Voringsfossen and Hardangervidda Plateau

This morning you will learn how Norwegians harness the hydropower in their native landscape on a guided tour of Sima Power Station, one of Europe’s largest hydroelectric power stations. A short film shows how the plant was built, including the creation of mountain-top lakes and channels bored through the rock, as well as the importance of developing sustainable energy sources for the future. You’ll then explore the main turbine hall, located 700m inside the mountain!

Learn about the relationship between nature, climate and environment at the Norwegian Nature Centre, through the use of innovative displays and interactive technology. The highlight of the visit is the dramatic audio-visual experience in the multi-screen, panoramic cinema, which connects students with the extraordinary natural world around them.

Voringsfossen, located within the Hardangervidda National Park, is Norway’s most famous waterfall, plunging 182m from the plateau. A viewing platform gives fantastic views of the main drop of 145m into the into the Måbødalen valley below. An amazing opportunity for a group photo

Next, your group will head onto the Hardangervidda Plateau, one of Europe’s largest, encompassing nearly 10,000 sq. km of varied Arctic wilderness; and home to the continent’s biggest herd of wild reindeer. The plateau’s diverse ecosystems support a range of wildlife. Vegetation includes mosses, dwarf shrubs and hardy alpine plants. Besides reindeer, you may also encounter arctic foxes, eagles, grouse, owls, cranes and falcons. On a clear day, the Hardangerjokulen glacier is visible to the north.

Tonight, you’ll be staying at the Zander K Hotel in the centre of Bergen, just a short walk from the city’s main attractions. Bergen is one of the most popular places to visit in Norway and it is easy to see why. Nestled between majestic mountains and stunning fjords, Bergen is known for its breathtaking natural beauty.




It’s your last day in Norway, but you still have a few hours to explore Bergen before your flight home.  Surrounded by mountains and fjords, Bergen is a picturesque city with a lot of interesting attractions.

Start by heading to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bryggen, a Hanseatic wharf, which is one of Bergen and Norway’s top attractions. This iconic site is one of the best-known urban settlements and trading areas remaining from the Middle Ages. You will want to take some time to admire the distinctive wooden buildings with their colourful facades. Today, Bryggen is home to a variety of shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and cafes.

Time permitting, you might want to take the funicular to the top of Mount Floyen where you can enjoy panoramic views over pretty Bergen and its surrounding fjords; or visit one of Bergen’s many museums – including the Bergen School Museum, Bergen Leprosy Museum or Store Blå Aquaculture Exhibition.

If you’re feeling peckish, head to the nearby Fish Market where you can find traditional Norwegian dishes and eat like a local. While seafood takes centre stage, the fish market also features stalls selling locally sourced fruits, vegetables, and other regional products. You can also find traditional Norwegian crafts and souvenirs – perfect if you’d like to take a little memento of Norway home with you!
