Do you travel to Norway with children? The contrasting nature in Western Norway and Hardanger is the perfect setting for an unforgettable holiday - for the whole family. In Hardanger, you will find various exciting and inspiring experiences - everything from water and amusement parks to interactive exhibitions and farm visits.
Get to know Mikkel, Mikkeline, and their friends at Mikkelparken! The amusement park in Kinsarvik is perfect for families with children between 1-10 years.
Visit the Norwegian Nature Center - Hardanger or the Folgefonn Center and learn more about this region's unique nature and climate. Or maybe you would like to feed the fish in the Hardanger Akvasenter or in the lake Gullfiskvatnet?
On a RIB boat safari, you will feel a breath of fresh air in your hair - children will like that too! You can even see eagles, small whales, or orcas on this excursion with a bit of luck. Or maybe you would rather explore the fjord more calmly? Rent kayaks and slide, very quietly, from one natural beauty to the next.
And, talking about wind in the hair - on the Folgefonna Glacier, you can go skiing in summer! The trails are family-friendly and suitable for everyone. On a guided glacier hike with the Folgefonni Glacier Team, you can explore ice that is a thousand years old; children from 7 years can take part in those tours. The view from the new Fonna 1199 restaurant, which is located directly by the glacier, is fantastic, and you can fully enjoy a well-deserved break here.
Or how about combining activity and learning? In the Olav H. Hauge Center, the Kraftmuseet Museum, and the Hardanger Maritime Museum, children can take part in several exciting and educational activities - everything from generating electricity to building small wooden boats.
Do your children like to swim? Then we recommend visiting some of the many beautiful beaches in the region. And when the weather is bad, you can swim inside - in the new Hardangerbad indoor pool, which is ideal for children and adults. By the way, it is right next to the new Hardangerfjord Hotel in Øystese.
