We land on tender boats, so getting on and off can be difficult for people with reduced mobility.
We arrive in Hjørundfjord by sea, where a tender boat takes us to the tiny village of Urke. Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany visited this area several times. We continue by bus through what is often referred to as Norway’s narrowest valley, Norangsdalen. The valley’s shape and location means it is often closed off in winter. Enjoy several breaks during the trip, including at a lake known as Lyngstølvatnet. Spot the ancient settlements in the water, forever submerged after a large landslide caused it to be naturally dammed in 1908. Wave at the Hotel Union Øye, which played an important role in Norwegian history.
We will also visit a small shieling situated in Norangsdalen. Here, we will get to taste the typical Norwegian cake, "lefse" together with some coffee. Next, we go to the community of Urke, where you can visit the local grocer. We guarantee a great experience in magnificent scenery.
