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.



To get to Haugsvarden, we start at the very special and scenic lay-by and picnic stop at Herreiane.

Most of the hike up is on bare hard rock, but it is surprisingly easy to walk on. The view is magnificent all the way up before we pass through a marshy area with some special pools shaped by the folding in the mountain before we reach the summit with a great view of Herand and where we enjoy a light lunch.


We walk back to the village through the old path and pastures. We end up with a late lunch at Meieriet Restaurant.


This hike cannot be done in rainy weather.

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.
