Why Eidfjord?

Eidfjord is located in the innermost part of the famous Hardangerfjord. Hardangerfjord is the second longest fjord in Norway (179 km) and is also called the Queen of the Fjords. The cruise port is located in the centre of Eidfjord and offers the very best and safest conditions.

Eidfjord offers a unique natural environment. With large contrasts and small distances, you can experience the most and best of what Norway has to offer. Our visitors can find peace and quiet in the natural environment, in addition to visiting many of our attractions or joining many of our adventures and activities.

The blossom season in May/June is unique. The mountainsides are covered in white, pink and red flowers, from the white snow at the top down to the blue fjord. July – October is the harvesting season for fruit, sweet cherries and cider festivals in the small villages along the fjord.
