Rowing on the fjord

Experience the fjord the traditional way

Wooden boats and the fjord belong together

Few thing can compare to rowing a traditional wooden boat along the beautiful Hardangerfjord.


Rowing boats for rent

A rowing trip is included in the museum ticket, and the boats can be rented for longer trips. Our traditional boats have been built in our small boat workshop:

  • 2 four-oared boats (færing),
  • A six-oared boat (seksæring)
  • An eight-oared boat (åttæring).

You don’t have to go far!

The islet of Sandvenholmen is situated just 400 metres from the centre. For many people, that’s far enough, and also makes for a lovely trip!

You can sit in the meadow and look across the fjord to the Folgefonna glacier and enjoy watching your children play on the shore.


Rowing in groups is a fun activity

We have room for 28 persons when all of our boats are in use.
 Let us know if you want to use our boats for events or a group activity, and we’ll find the best solution for your group.
