About four miles walking from Iedfjiord and the end of the lake above Eidfjord, with lovely views of the mountains. I started the walk ready for chilly weather, but the sun came out and I had to take my large coat and jumper off. One of the most beautiful walks I have done.

Hardanger Bridge by Tony

The Hardanger Bridge (Norwegian: Hardangerbrua) is a suspension bridge across the Eidfjorden branch of Hardangerfjorden in Hordaland county, Norway. The bridge connects the municipalities of Ullensvang and Ulvik. It replaced a ferry connection between Bruravik and Brimnes, and thereby shortens the driving time between Oslo and Bergen. It is the longest suspension bridge in Norway.
