Tucked into the end of the Hardangerfjord in the bucolic fjord village of Ulvik, Brakanes Hotel is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Oslo and Bergen yet perfectly positioned for exploring the unspoiled wilderness and cultural traditions of Western Norway. This pastoral hamlet is famed for its bountiful orchards. Luckily, as Brakanes Hotel sits right along the region’s Cider Route, guests need not travel far to reach the area’s prolific farms and sample the fruits of their labor. Thanks to its fjordside location, it is also a convenient base for exploring the rest that Hardanger has to offer, whether going for a hike, embarking on a RIB-boat or kayak tour of the fjords, or taking a bus to witness one of Norway’s most awe-inspiring waterfalls, Vøringsfossen. It is also around a 10-minute drive from Hardanger Bridge, which offers sweeping views of the fjord landscape.
