Odda Things to Do
Taste the fruits...
Around Odda you'll find some specific fruit farms.
I have tried until now only the apples but I am sure that the cherries and the plums could have the same unique taste.
Eating some apples from Odda I have recognised the taste of apples from Maneciu... somewhere in Romania, so many years ago :(
Old road replaced by tunnel
From Haugesund, or Etne on road E134 to Odda, Just south-west of Langfossen, there's a long tunnel that goes from Kypring to Saghaugen, and on our map there was a road around. We came from the south, got off the E134 at Kypring, and immediately turned to the right and uphill on a road with no sign at all (the only time this happened to us in Norway). The road is not well kept, but was in decent driving condition, including a bridge. It's 11 km long, high on the fjord edge. There was no other car all the way, at the north side there were some boats and an orderly connection to the main road, so it wasn't completely deserted.
There are some short tunnels, hewn out of hard rock with no effort to cover or smooth the boulders, this doesn't look at all machine-made.Related to:

This looks like twins!
A twin waterfall coming down towards the road. One of the nicest of Norway I think.

Odda Off The Beaten Path
Everything here seems to be Off the...
The landscape on my way was impressive and I will share with you some photos...enjoy them!
I have spent 14 hours driving in that day... How? Look at the photos and you will understand.
Everything is so clean and untouched... I had to see as much as possible.
Another off the beaten track road.
On the N13 from Røldal to Odda. Just after you made the 360° tunnel Hara, going north. Just before you enter the next tunnel 7 km long, there is an exit on your right, this goes up the mountain with hairpins.
But it is absolutely breathtaking views, didn't meet any cars, just a biker who loved the scenery as well.
It's worth while to look at the maps before you start a journey, and if you have some extra time to do it, it makes the trip that much interesting.Related to:

Just passing throug, around Hardanger...
Favorite thing: I had the chance to be here for less than an hour on 1st of May in 2009.
I have seen than the end of the 1st of May parade with nice people and their lovely costumes, surprised that places like this one still exist on our crowded and dirty World.
I have made few photos there and I am sure that you will appreciate the city and the breathtaking nature.
