Ulvik, Norway

In Partnership With

Tucked away in a snug corner of the Hardangerfjord, the small, scenic village of Ulvik sits along the shoreline, with orchards filling the green hills behind. This popular little resort is an excellent place to unwind with hiking trails that crisscross the rough uplands to the north of Ulvik, and meander along the surrounding shoreline. The townspeople are justly proud and happy to share their "kulturlandskapsplan" (culture landscape plan), in which four designated areas incorporate both footpaths and historic sights, including the Ljonakleiv crofter's farm in the hills above the village.
