Overlooking a branch of the Hardangerfjord, Eidfjord is a historic village in Norway’s scenic Vestland county. It’s renowned for its ancient burial site and the dramatic Vøringfossen waterfall, as well as its easy access toHardangervidda National Park.
On a hill just east of Eidfjord lies the Haereidsmoen Iron Age Burial Site, which encompasses around 350 graves dating from 400 to 1000 AD. It’s one of the largest ancient burial sites in Norway and is nestled in a scenic meadow surrounded by rugged mountains. Wander through this tranquil setting while reading the interpretive panels that detail the Iron Age weapons and Viking Age jewellery uncovered here.
Continue driving south-east and you’ll arrive at Vøringfossen, which plunges 182 metres into the Måbødalen valley. A strikingly designed bridge traverses the ravine and offers spectacular views of the waterfall, which is said to have been frequented by the Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg. Vøringfossen can be accessed along a hiking trail that leads through its rocky ravine or aboard the miniature Troll Train that runs during the summer months.
Eidfjord can be used as a base for visiting Hardangervidda National Park, which extends across Europe’s largest mountain plateau. It’s home to migratory reindeer herds and stone age settlements, both of which can be explored while hiking or horseback riding. A highlight of visiting the region is trekking to witness the four magnificent waterfalls of Husedalen that descend from the Hardanger Plateau along the Kinso River.
Eidfjord is around 2.5 hours’ drive from Bergen and Bergen Airport, which has flights to destinations across Europe. Buses connect towns and villages across the region, although having your own vehicle is the most convenient way to explore. The centre of Eidfjord is compact enough to explore on foot.
