Activities and attractions


Hardanger Akvasenter

Hardanger Akvasenter is the first facility to exhibit Norwegian fish farming. It is located in the mouth of beautiful Fyksesund, close to Steinstø Fruit Farm and Gamlastovo Farm Restaurant. A preliminary exhibition center is located on the Steinstø quay, and from here you will be taken by boat to the main exhibition center. Here you can follow the journey of the salmon from smolt to top restaurants in Paris or Tokyo. Visitors can watch the salmon via underwater cameras and walk around the facility, to experience the salmon live. In the café you can order salmon dishes and other local food specialties from Hardanger

Hardanger fjordreiser

From the pier in Steinstø, just off Rv 7, the charter boat M/S Peer Gynt may take you on a voyage into beautiful Fyksesundet. From either outdoors on the sun deck or inside in the lounge, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the fjord, mountains and waterfalls, as well as an award winning cultural landscape. A guide-CD tells passengers about the places they are passing : for example "Skåro—A place no one could believe that anyone could live." At the end of the sound, lies the village of Botnen—the birth place of the Hardanger fiddle—inaccessible by car. The boat can moor and it may be possible to go ashore. M/S Peer Gynt is available for rent for sightseeing, company trips, or other trips and events. The lounge is pleasant and comfortable with seating (at tables) for 48 people. We will collect and deliver you wherever you wish, in the Hardanger region. We can also arrange food and drink onboard—just ask us for the menu and prices, in advance.



Fyksesund Braut

Fyksesund Braut is an adventure company that operates in and around Fyksesund. The storybook scenery surrounding us leaves lasting impressions. Take advantage of the knowledge of the local guides. We offer exclusive day trips for smaller groups, and adventure packages for larger groups, both on the water and in the mountains. We can also use climbing and rappelling. On longer trips we take food with us, locally produced in the Landscape Park, and enjoy it by a campfire.




Bjørnebruket is located in Rykkje, along RV7, between Øystese and Fyksesund. The farm is placed in a small valley about 800 meters from RV7, with a view toward the Hardangerfjord. We sell ecological lamb meat and offer activities for groups on the farm. The farm is situated in a beautiful countryside, on 20 acres of cultivated land and 12 acres of pasture. A summer pasture, with a cottage, is located in the mountains, in an area called southern Hamlagrø. We have about 75 winter-fed sheep, some chickens and 400 – 500 turkeys during the summer season. In the farmyard you can watch lambs, chickens, dogs and cats play.
