Fyksesund is the only side fjord in the Hardangerfjord without a road to the inner part of the fjord arm. The last 5 km of the 10 km long fjord goes between steep mountainsides to the roadless old village Botnen at the end of the fjord.

Tour description

You meet your guide at Hardangerfjord Hotel in Øystese. After dressing up and do a brief review of safety you head out on the fjord. Across the Hardangerfjord, the trip enters the old trading town of Herandsholmen. From here the trips goes north across the fjord and enters Fyksesund which is an adventurous beautiful fjord arm midway through the Hardangerfjord.

The trip goes back via Kvamsøy. With a bit of luck even porpoises show themselves in the water. There are several stops close to land along the way to experience nature and life along the fjord. It is important to have a camera easily accessible.
