Eidfjord, Norway cruise holidays
The Norwegian cruise port Eidfjord is a small sleepy village near huge scale attractions including the largest high mountain plateau (Hardangervidda) and Norways largest national park.
Eidfjord stands on the banks of the fjord, from which it takes its name, and has attractions of its own including a 14th century church and the largest collection of ancient graves in western Norway at its Viking Burial Place.
A couple of miles away is the Hardangervidda Nature Centre, which is an unusual adventure centre with all kinds of interactive ways of illustrating the rich natural, cultural and historical heritage of the region. Equally unusual is the Troll Train, which travels through the Mabodalen Valley to Norways most famous waterfall - Voringsfossen, which free falls nearly 500 feet.
