The Hardangerfjord is 179 km long and is one of the most famous of several beautiful fjords in Hordaland. It is especially renowned for the "Hardanger spring blossoming", one of the most beautiful sights that Norwegian nature has to offer. This is a long and quiet fjord with colorful blossoms on the fruit trees and snow-covered peaks all in one view. The fjord is lined by a number of charming villages.
