Experience the taste of Hardanger!

“Sider frå Hardanger” (Hardanger cider) is a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) in the same way as Calvados and Champagne. This unique cider has enjoyed a renaissance and become an award-winning premium product. There are 19 cider producers in Hardanger, each making their own unique cider, based on their story and their apples.


Join a cider safari and visit one of the cider producers for an introduction to the production, culture and taste of cider. This trip from Lofthus includes cider tasting at Alde Sideri or Store Naa Siderkompani


This package includes:

  • Fjord cruise Lofthus–Nå round trip
  • Cider tasting at either Alde Sider or Store Naa Siderkompani

The experience starts at the quay in Lofthus, where you board the cider boat. The boat departs at 11:15, so make sure you arrive in good time before departure.


Glide past majestic mountainsides, glaciers, charming fjord villages, and hundreds of thousands of fruit trees in Sørfjorden - Norway's largest fruit orchard. Inside you will find Nordic inspired interior design offering a high level of comfort. The onboard café serves hot and cold drinks (all rights: local wine, cider and beer) and a variety of pastries and sandwiches.


The Experiences you can choose from are:


Alde Sider

Alde is an old name for apple in Hardanger, and the man behind Alde Sider is Olav Bleie. He runs the family farm where they have grown apples for generations. Alde Sider makes first class apple juice together with a wide selection of cider from Hardanger. You will be served classic, award-winning ciders combined with stories and a taste of Norwegian cheeses.

Store Naa Siderkompani

The farm at Store Naa has been owned by the same family since 1724. Previously an abondoned chicken house, it has now been taken in use to develop and test new, exciting cider flavors. The cider tasting takes place in an open landscape or in the old, authentic cider cellar.



The boat from Nå back to Lofthus departs at 13:45 


Arrival at the quay in Lofthus at 14:25.
