Folgefonn glacier

Snowshoeing with Folgefonni Glacier Team is an easy activity and fits everyone

(from 12 years). As the blue ice at Folgefonna Glacier is covered by snow most of

the year, tours are available all year round but routes will depend on actual snow

conditions. February to June and October to December are very good periods for

snowshoe walks on or around the Folgefonna Glacier.

Museums and visitor centres

In the historic houses at Hardanger Folk Museum (Utne) and Agatunet (Aga) groups

may experience the culture and heritage of Hardanger at close range. Guided tours

and special arrangements like Hardanger fiddle concerts, cider tastings or courses

are available on request all year round. The permanent site-specific light installation

Hardanger Skyspace by James Turrell gives a unique experience of light, perception

and space, open all year round (sunrise and sunset).

Visitor Farms

Several farms in the Hardangerfjord region are open for visitors

and welcome groups on request all year round. Cosy farm visits

with personal stories about farming in western Norway, tastings of

local, home made products incl. cider tastings, lunches or dinners.

Thon Hotel Sandven, a hotel full of

charm and history, was built at the end

of the 19th century as Sandven Hotel.

The hotel offers 102 guest rooms. The

rooms located in the oldest part of the

hotel are all different in appearance with

their own distinctive and unique character.

The newest part of the hotel consists of

brand new rooms with modern interior.

In our apartment section you will find

one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments

with kitchen facilities. These apartments

are suitable for both short and longer

stays and are, especially during the summer,

perfect for families with children. Several

of the rooms offer a view of the fjord.

Thon Hotel Sandven in Norheimsund is

a great starting point for exploring one

of the most beautiful fjords in Norway,

the Hardangerfjord. Easy access to bus

and boat transportation makes it easy to

participate in activities and sightseeing

tours in the area. Day trips to Trolltunga,

Folgefonna and Bergen are only some

of the possibilities. Daily fjord cruises

from Norheimsund to Eidfjord are offered

during the summer season.
