If you’re looking for a day-trip destination, we’ve got a couple of ideas. Situated 25 miles away, Kvam is worth hopping in the car for. Hardanger Akvasenter, Ingebrigt Vik Museum and Hardanger Maritime Museum alone make the drive out worthwhile. Locals are also likely to point you toward Voss, 43 miles away. If you can only see one attraction here, let it be Voss Gondol. (But we’re also big fans of Voss Ski Area and Voss Folkemuseum.)
Load up the trunk with tasty snacks and drinks and make your way to one of the awesome beaches near Os. Some of the best places to set up a seaside picnic are:
Austrevagen (5 miles away).
Helleneset Beach (16 miles away).
