"A masterpiece of nature's work" wrote Charles Boilieu Elliott in 1830 about Ullensvang. After crossing the Hardangervida plateau he stood at the top of the steep mountain side, looking down on the Hardangerfjord, the Folgefonna glacier, beautiful waterfalls and tiny villages and farms. 


Unfortunately he could not go on a fjorcruise with us, but since the arrival of the first tourist, many more have followed. The scenery and the local culture of the Hardangerfjord attracted many artists in the 19th and 20th centuries. Like composer Edvard Grieg, who was a guest in Ullensvang many summers, where he found inspiration to write music.

Ullensvang in Hardanger is still today an icon of nature and culture.

Hardanger has been one of the most important tourist destinations in Norway, and the attractions that drew people to visit in the past are the same as today: The fjord, glaciers, mountains and waterfall.
