Surrounded by gentle valleys, green fields, beaches and small islands, Strandebarm lies like a pearl on the side of the Hardanger fjord, 30 km south of Norheimsund. The charm and quiet that prevail in this small village can be enjoyed while staying at the hotel, camping, or in a rented cabin or house. Strandebarm has a post office, store, petrol station, and most of whatever travels need.

The fjord and boat building has always been important for Strandebarm, there is even a type of row boat called Strandebarm. The boat building tradition is still very strong and an important part of the local economy, but both production and product has changed dramatically. Fjellstrand AS, the local modern ship building yard, builds fast passenger boats and car ferries of aluminum. Fjellstrand is a cornerstone business in the community and employees 123 persons.

Strandebarm has been the home to two important Norwegian authors: Hans E. Kinck and Jon Fosse. “Kinck Days” are arranged every summer to pay tribute to the author who lived and worked in the community at the end of the 1800s. Jon Fosse is a modern very versatile, productive author and well known outside of Norway. He has written short stories, novels, poetry, children’s books and many plays. It is his dramatic works that he is best known for abroad. Fosse was the most popular dramatist in Europe in 2005 and his plays have been translated into 30 different languages.


As well as making new cultural events, Strandebarmers have been good at taking care of the old culture as well. Nestunet at Mundheim is a living example of this. Nestunet, which is open for overnight stays, has received the “Olavsrosa” for its restoration of the houses, the farm landscape, and the preservation of cultural values. Her you will find well kept buildings, the oldest one dating back to the 1700s, which make for a unique historical atmosphere on the farm.
