Gardnos meteorite crater
Gardnos meteorite crater was formed about 650 million years ago by the impact of a high-speed meteorite with a diameter of 200-300 m. The violent collision created a crater about 5 km wide. 
Hardangervidda is Northern Europe's largest high mountain plateau. You'll see extended plains in the east and more of an alpine character in the west. Hardangerjøkulen is one of Norway's largest glaciers, and Hårteigen is visible from most of the plateaus open landscape. 
Hardangerjøkulen (1860 masl) lies like a snow-covered dome between Finse (1222 masl) to the north and Hardangervidda in the south. 
Skarvheimen offers Aurlandsdalen, the Navvies' Road (Rallarvegen), Reineskarvet, the Hemsedal Mountains and Hallingskarvet. The eastern part of southern Norway meets western Norway at Skarvheimen in a beautiful mountain landscape. 
National Park of Hallingskarvet
More than 300 million years ago, long before the last ice age, a massive mountain ridge was shoved up over the plain. Today, Hallingskarvet stands as a comfortable landmark and separates Hardangervidda and Skarvheimen. 
The well-known valley Aurlandsdalen, was once one of the main routes between the eastern and western parts of Norway. 
Nærøyfjord - World Heritage List
The wildest and most beautiful branch of the Sognefjord. The Nærøyfjord is 17 km long and the narrowest point is only 250 m wide.  
Aurlandsvegen - Mountain road
The mountainroad between Aurland and Lærdal (Fv243 Aurlandsvegen) is open from 1 June to approx. 15 October. From Aurland to the viewpoint Bjørgo, the road is open all year. 
Waterfalls in Hardanger
Norway is internationally renowned for its waterfalls, and you will find the most popular ones in Hardanger. Dive deep into the adventure at Vøringfossen, Låtefossen and Steinsdalsfossen. 
Hardangerfjord, Norway's second longest fjord, is surrounded by steeply sloped mountains, lush communities and majestic waterfalls. 
A surfaced road of 19 kms (Toll road NOK 50) leads from the ferry quay to the glacier edge of Norway's 3rd largest glacier.
