A great piece of scenery not far from the west coast of Norway, with deep fjords and high mountains. Besides the beautiful nature, Hardanger is also known for it's fruit cultivation, brought here by the Cistercian monks from Lyse Abbey - also called Saint Mary's Abbey, Lyse - in the middle age. Among the fruit they grow here, you find apples, pears, cherries, plums, etc.
