Norway: Hardangerfjord – Apple Orchards in the Fall

A staggering 40% of all fruits grown in Norway comes from the Hardangerfjord. Apples, cherries, and plums all come from here. Apple farms line up the narrow land strips along the bottom of the fjord – and farm after apple farm generate massive amount of juicy northern apples, also producing some of the best apple cider in the world. The apple trees are tiny, sometimes just about the human height, but they are covered with apples to insane amounts – like Christmas trees with decorations. Ciders are phenomenal here as well, although trying them right at the farm is a bit hard since Norway has zero alcohol tolerance for driving under influence and the tasting will not be offered for you if you are self-driving.
