Ulvik is probably most famous for its fruit and cider farms.The Hardanger Fjord area is known as the fruit orchard of Norway. Nowhere on the world is it possible to grow fruit on this latitude (about 60 degrees north). The mild climate in the Hardanger region, the protective geography from the elements and the long summer days add up to an ideal location for fruit farming.
We take you along the cider route and stop by these family run cider farms where you can experience the pride and legacy, which the owners have put in their products for generations. Every cider farm has its unique specialty and approach to processing fruit and food. And we might just have a tasting sample on the way.
This activity is a guided drive and walk along the cider route, where you become familiar with the cider farms and their productions.
Guide + transport to farms + various tastes of cider and apple juice.
