Join our experienced guides on a tour in the area around Herand with superb views over the beautiful cultural landscape in the Hardangerfjord. Exclusive tour for groups; suitable for couples, groups of friends or companies.
Epic crossing of the mountain from west to east! We walk in the opposite direction from the description you find online. This trip is weather contingent.
We go by car to Botsvatn, where we head up the sherpa steps and continue on the path marked by stone piles. The hike is 17 km long and very hard! Only for experienced mountain hikers with proper equipment (shoes, clothes and walking poles).
We are picked up at Reisete. If you wish, we can visit one or more sider farms for a taste of the famous Hardanger sider and perhaps with dinner at Siderhuset Ola K?
To ensure our customers have the best experience, we only offer private tours that are tailored to your group's wishes, needs and fitness.
Your guide speaks English.
