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.

It was a fantastic tour. At high speed you make a beautiful trip through the fjord. The captain stops at beautiful points and tells about the locals, the environment and the animals that live there. It's doable. You get a waterproof and warm suit on what is needed. Would do it again even in less weather and rain.

The ride was beautiful - great explanations - we learned a lot about the electric power plant and about the animal world. To our delight we saw a white-tailed eagle. In between a lot of fast maneuvers with daring corners, we laughed a lot. Thank you for the nice afternoon.
