An attractive attraction in an arm of Hardanger fjord. It was interesting to see and to hear the "ranger" describe salmon farming. The area around it is a huge photo-op of quaint village and glorious fjord.

Thank you so much for your feedback Tamir! It was nice to meet you and Im happy you enjoyed your visit. PS: Most salmon that you buy in or from Norway is raised in seabased fishfarms like Hardanger Akvasenter.

And very educational. Learned a great deal about salmon fishing. Didn't realize the amount of scientific research that goes into fish food development and distribution. Would be great for kids to visit.
