Heavenly Hardanger

Hardanger Fjord

Norway 14th -21st April 2012

We have put together a truly lovely trip to Hardanger including three nights stay at the 5star+Ullensvang Hotel (my favourite hotel in the world). Many of you joined us for the last trip and know that this hotel was a revelation! We have three nights at this lovely site with views across the Hardanger fjord and the chance to sample the sumptuous Hardanger buffet three nights running….The trip is a bit more complicated this time as we can no longer use the ferry to Bergen but we have all sorts of plans for you……

PLEASE put me on the list, Jane, that is, if I am not already on it. The usual single occupancy for me, please.
