Information: Hordaland is almost divided into two by the 179 km long Hardangerfjord, one of Norway's main fjords and a great tourist attraction. Hordaland is a region of island and skerries and sheltered bays, fjords with steep mountainsides, magnificent waterfalls, mountain plateaux and glaciers and fertile valleys.
The majority of the population live in the coastal areas and on the low-lying narrow strip of farming land along the fjords. Hordaland has more than 100 natural parks. The Hardanger Mountain Plateau is the largest mountain plateau in Northern Europe. The park is the home of the largest herd of wild reindeer in Europe.
