Drive along Sorfjord in Hardanger

Deep in the heart of Hardanger, the fjord splits, with part then going east to Eidfjord and part going south to Odda - this is Sorfjord, and it is where many of the most dramatic scenery can be found, complete with fruit orchards lining much of the fjord waterline.

a skater on the frozen lake just south of Odda From the small market town of Odda, drive up the western side of the Fjord on the FV 550 past the industrial area and tunnel under the mountain to western Hardanger past fruit orchards and views across the fjord. On arrival at Utne - with Utne hotel - take the ferry eastwards to Kinsarvik - with Kinsarvik fjord hotel.
Take the RV 13 south where the side of the valley is lined with fruit orchards and the views across to the glacier above the mountains on the other side are quite stunning and unforgettable. Through Loftus - with the impressive Hotel Ullensvang - and Tyssedal back to Odda again.
From Odda you can go south then east for Telemark and Agder or west for Rogaland including Haugesund and Stavanger.
From Kinsarvik you can go east over Hardangervidda to Geilo, west to Bergen or north to Voss and Sognefjord beyond.
