Full description
Take an exhilarating 1-hour fjord tour from Eidfjord Harbor as your captain explains the sights along the way. Stop at a place where goats will come down to the boat, and pause to look at seals in the sea or on land. Look out for the rich birdlife that populates Eidfjord, and learn about about what has shaped the nature, people and society in this region.   Pass one of Norway's largest power plants at Simadal Fjord, and admire the steep mountainsides and waterfalls of this fjord. Alternatively, cruise out to Hardangerbrua to study the power station from the sea. Along this route, you'll pass a waterfall that almost falls on the boat on rainy days, and other sights of cultural-historical significance.
