    If you'll drive along the Hardangerfjord from Odda to Eidfiord you'll have to go through Kinsarvik.
    Stop for a while here and try to see at least the nice places from my photos.
    If you have any other reccommendations, please share them with me... I am still here looking for nice places :)

    Simadalsfjorden-August 2011
    2 more images

    If you are in Eidfjord, do not miss the Simadalsfjorden.
    It is only few minutes away and it is unique.
    It seems that there are a kot of nice waterfallls too and unfortunatelly I have heard about Kjeasen too late.
    You may find there a nice view to the fjord and not only. Probably I will go there sometime to get some nice photos and some nice memories too.

    Simadalsfjord :Now is danger
    4 more images

    One of the unforgettable fjords - Simadalsfjord, is not so known. The best view is from Kjeåsen mountain farm. From Eidfjord drive around 1.5 kilometres past Sima hydroelectric power plant, and then take the first road to the left.

  • Do you need a bird guide? Birdwatching at Eidfjord

    by echapman Updated Apr 4, 2011
    Male Bluethroat - a stunning bird

    Eidfjord lies at the foot of the Hardangervidda, or as it is also known Norway?s roof. Here there is endless expanse of mountain tundra. By the 1st July, the toll road into Tinnh?len is usually open and such mountain species as Horned Lark, Bluethroat, Snow Bunting and Lapland Longspur are a few of the species to be found. If you need a guide please feel free to contact me.

    Voringfossen the Great

    by evaanna Updated Feb 22, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Voringfossen from below.

    The king of Norwegian waterfalls, Voringfossen, is 181 m high. If you look at it from above from the special platform near the Fossli Hotel, where you must pay NOK 20 to park your car, the camera can't take it all in and the grandeur of the place is lost. You can get a much better view of it from a parking lot situated near Road 7 a few hairpin bends below going in the westerly direction. Or perhaps you should see both the views to compare. Note how small the hotel at the top is in comparison with the cliff it sits on. There are souvenir shops and restaurants (the hotel one rather posh) in both places.

    One of Norway's most famous waterfalls!

    V��ringfossen

    Vøringfossen

    The Vøringfossen is probably the most known waterfall of Norway. Just northwest of Harddangervidda on road 7 from Geilo to Eidfjord.
    For the nicest total view on this waterfall you have to take the sideroad to the Fossli Hotel. The Fossli Hotel has a large Parking Area, which unfortunately costs you NOK 20,-. But than again it gives you the best view of Vøringfossen and Måbødalen.

    Getting to Eidfjord

    by Sharrie Updated Apr 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It took me a long way to get here... from Stockholm, Oslo, Bergen, then Voss, Ulvik, Hardanger & finally Eidfjord.

    This is one of the pix taken along the way. Sometimes, the enroute scenery does have a charm of its own.

    The sky

    by Sharrie Updated Apr 21, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ever looked at the sky? I mean truly look at it? I did a lot of that while in Norway & Canada. I don't know why, but I found them most beautiful here. Sometimes, you like something for no reason other than a feeling of affinity... & here, I feel home.

    M��b��dalen

    Måbødalen

    Here road 7 gets down to sealevel or fjordlevel if you like. The Highland of Hardangervidda stops here and trough several hairpins the road gets down to the Fjords.
