Across the Hardangerfjord, the trip enters the old trading town of Herandsholmen. From here the trips goes north across the fjord and enters Fyksesund which is an adventurous beautiful fjord arm midway through the Hardangerfjord. Fyksesund is the only side fjord in the Hardangerfjord without a road to the inner part of the fjord arm. The last 5 km of the 10 km long fjord goes between steep mountainsides to the roadless old village Botnen at the end of the fjord. Join us on an adrenaline-filled RIB tour – the fastest boat ride you can get! Your driver and guide stops a couple of times to let the unique scenery work its magic and to provide interesting facts about the fjord and people who used to live at the fjord farms. With a bit of luck even porpoises show themselves in the water. There are several stops close to land along the way to experience nature and life along the fjord. It is important to have a camera easily accessible.

Stop At:

Kvamsøy has a weather station from the Meteorological Institute that sends weather data four times a day to the entire world, a so-called synoptic station. The weather station is located at Austerhaugen. There is also a small beacon, which is still in operation, on this mound. There are several burial mounds on both Kvamsøy and Tjuvholmen, and bus discoveries have been made from both the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, between other parts of a bronze ax.

Today, the houses on Herandsholmen stand out as comfortable, worthy cultural-historical pearls, where they are so beautifully located right in the heart of the Hardangerfjord. It is possible to rent Herandsholmen to larger groups and events.

Stop At:

At the end of the Fyksesund fjord lays the old village of Botnen. A historical village and stunning nature.
