The picturesque village of Ulvik with its wooden houses and scenic mountain backdrop, lies in a sheltered bay of the spectacular Hardangerfjord, known as the Orchard of Norway due to its plentiful fruit trees.

Ålesund is a bustling port and fascinating seaside town facing the Atlantic Ocean at the entrance to the region of outstanding natural beauty and some of Norway’s most dramatic fjords. Due to its position, it enjoys more days of sunshine throughout the year than areas deeper into the fjords. After a devastating fire in 1904, the town was totally rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, with a myriad of turrets, spires and medieval ornaments which are still present today. In addition to the many museums, there is a variety of interesting day trips to the surrounding islands and skerries of local fishing communities dating back to the Viking era.More information
Loen sits at the inner tip of the Nordfjord in the heart of the Western Fjord’s greatest natural beauty. There can be few more inspirational stretches of scenery than those in the nearby Lodal and Briksdal Valleys, whose farms and forested slopes are mirrored in a chain of glittering emerald lakes culminating in the ice-blue glacial tongues of the great Jøstedal Glacier.More information
