Tucked away in a snug corner of the Hardangerfjord, the pocket-sized village of ULVIK strings prettily along the shoreline, with orchards dusting the green hills behind. There's nothing specific to see – the town's main claim to fame as the place where potatoes were first grown in Norway in 1765 just about sums things up – but it's an excellent place to unwind, a popular little resort with a cluster of good hotels. Hiking trails lattice the rough uplands to the north of Ulvik and explore the surrounding shoreline. Indeed the local council have gone to some trouble here in their "kulturlandskapsplan" (culture landscape plan), in which four designated areas incorporate both footpaths and historic sights, most enjoyably the Ljonakleiv crofter's farm in the hills above the village; hiking maps are available at the tourist office.
