  • Taste the “champagne” of apple ciders during a tour of farms along Ulvik’s Fruit and Cider Route. Apple growing is a long-standing tradition in the Hardanger region, with families of farmers producing the popular fruit for hundreds of years. Unsurprisingly, its culture of apple cider production is just as storied. In fact, Hardanger cider is so unique that it has even been designated with a protected geographical indication, just like the Champagne region of France.
  • Savor some fjord-fresh seafood. Fish farming is one of the Hardangerfjord’s most major industries, producing over 40,000 tons of rainbow trout and salmon each year. While both classic fish dishes and newer favorites can be found at restaurants throughout the area, travelers can also gain insight into the aquaculture industry at Hardanger Akvasenter in Øystese, a working salmon farm and visitor center.
  • Enjoy the bounty of Hardanger at Restaurant Draumen, Brakanes Hotel’s onsite eatery. It is no surprise that a region known for its lush orchards has a rich culinary tradition. At Restaurant Draumen, diners get to try a sampling of that harvest, due to the restaurant’s close partnership with the area’s best local suppliers. For a truly farm-to-table dining experience, visit during the summer months, when the team carts freshly picked produce from the fields of an area farm directly into the eatery’s kitchen.
