Saturday started out with some nice weather so we jumped in the Mjollnir-mobile and set off for a trip around some of the spectacular scenery to the south of Bergen.
Leaving Fyllingsdalen we travelled through the southern part of town past Nesttun and along the shores of Kalandsvatnet, about which I posted a few months ago, and on to the town of Os where we were a couple of weeks ago. Passing through Os we continued on to the ferry terminal at Hattvik for the short trip across the Bjørnafjord to Venjaneset. This is still on the mainland but the ferry crossing cuts out a very long road trip around the fjord (see map below).
From there we drove along some forested mountain roads by the shores of the Fusafjord and past the village of Eikedalsosen before arriving at the tiny community of Mundheim on the shores of the Hardangerfjord where we stopped to enjoy the fantastic views in the sunshine.
From Mundheim we continued south along the Hardangerfjord towards our next destination of the day, the second ferry terminal of the trip at Gjermundshamn for the trip to Årsnes on the other side of the fjord and the drive to our main destination of the day, the beautiful village of Rosendal and its famous Barony.
