Cider tour from Lofthus
- Fjord Cruises and Fjord Safari
Experience local flavors and a fantastic fjord landscape on this trip from Lofthus! You enter the boat on the harbor in Lofthus, and can enjoy a sustainable fjord cruise with hybrid electric Vision of the Fjords.
The boat trip is an experience in itself and from the large and open decks you can enjoy a quiet and comfortable trip across the beautiful Hardangerfjord. On the trip you have a view of the mighty Folgefonna, the majestic mountains over the Hardangerfjord and lush orchards on both sides of the fjord.
Cider Tasting & Lunch at Aga Sideri
When you arrive at the quay at Aga, you will be met by the owner at Aga Sideri. Here some of the best ciders in Norway are produced, maybe even in the world! In 2020, the cider Bøddel won the award "Norway's best Cider" during the Norwegian food and drinks competition called Det Norske Måltid.
At the Aga Sideri you will learn more about how traditional Hardanger Sider is made and also here you will have the opportunity to taste the precious drops, including the Norwegian champion Bøddel. There will be 3 tastings at Aga Sideri, and you will have the opportunity to buy your favorites to bring at home.
Now that you have received a thorough introduction to how cider is made (and taste), a delicious home-made lunch will be served at Agatunet, made by the mother of owner of Aga Sideri. The lunch menu consists of local ingredients with a focus on fresh ingredients. You will also be taken on a guided tour of the historic Agatunet, one of the few remaining farm clusters in Norway. After lunch and a tour of Agatunet, it's time to get on the boat again and cruise back to Lofthus.
