Ulvik is a village in Hordaland, Norway. It is the administration center of Ulvik municipality (pop. 1,107 as of 2008) which also contains Finse, a large mountain area, some other small settlements, and a large number of farms, many of which are abandoned.
Ulvik village sits at the end of Ulvik fjord. The inner part of the fjord is relatively shallow and almost closed off from the main fjord like a lagoon. The village is surrounded by fine small farms and fruit gardens. One of these farms were run by poet Olav H. Hauge, his "This is the Dream" was voted Norway's best poem of all times. His poems often reflects life among the apple trees in pretty, sheltered Ulvik. The well-known final words of the poem "...that one early morning we will slip into a bay we have never known" may resonnate with sailing up Ulvik fjord.
