Thursday 6 July – Sunday 9 July: Ulvik Summer Festival
The 16th annual highlight of the year kicks off a massive celebration of the summer! Down by the boat-dock, you’ll find a large, local market with everything from woolen socks to snacks and haircare-products. At the dock, there will be several activities for young and old, whether you’d like to take a spin in a zorbing-ball on the fjord, give your children the opportunity to go on a ride with the Elias-boat or try your hand (or arms!) at the hanging-competition over the fjord. The national championship in pallet-paddling takes place here with awards for the best and most creative teams. Join the grand fishing-competition, and enjoy the after-fish and events at Brakanes hotell and the Green Café. Welcome to a weekend jam-packed with fun and activities for the entire family!

Welcome to “Øydvinstod Hyttegrend”!
In a splendid landscape of the fjord we have to let a romantic holiday house and three seacabins for 4 to 6 persons. There is an own shoreline, beach, fireplace by the shore and a new quai.
The Norwegian fjords was in 2005 elected by Int. National Geographic to be the best travelling target in the world.
The holiday destination of Øydvinstod is situated beside the idyllic Osafjord, about four km from the village of Ulvik in Hardanger. There you can find peace and quietness in an unspoiled paradise surrounded by tall mountains and with the fjord just a few metres away.
The beautiful, wild and untouched nature in Ulvik makes this area ideal for fjords-/mountains trips and quiet footpath in blooming, narrow and exotic valleys. In the fjord, you can look at the smallest whales in the world called Nise (Norwegian). In the air the sea eagle is floating looking for his prey in the fjord. You can also go to summer skiing at the glacier Folgefonna, Voss and to Bergen. Bergen is an old german “Hansastadt”.
The holiday house have place for 4 persons and the cabins for 6 + extra bed for a small child. There’s good fishing in the fjord.
