Norheimsund is the administrative and service centre in Kvam. This is the meeting point for boat routes. Kvam received an award for its work restoring the shore front in Norheimsund. There is a new dock for visiting boats, a nicely decorated promenade along the docks and lots of parking space.

The historical Sandven Hotel is a part of this shoreline. The hotel in "Swiss dragon style" architecture, its surrounding buildings and an old courthouse make a very special historical setting in the centre of town. From the town centre you can take a walk along Mo lake to the famous Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, especially well-known for its path behind the falls, or you can visit Hardanger Fartøyvernsenter, a national centre for the restoration of wooden boats.
