Kinsarvik Municipality existed as a municipality off and on from 1838 until 1964 when it was merged into Ullensvang.GeographyKinsarvik sits at the end of the Husedalen valley. The wild Kinso river runs through the village, and the rivers is what gives name to Kinsarvik. Its name stems from "kinn" which means "steep mountainside" (the valley has steep mountainsides) and so "Kinsarvik" simply means "The Bay of Kinso". The Kinso River drops from the vast Hardangervidda plateau through the Husedalen valley before emptying into the sea level fjord at Kinsarvik. Along the way there are 4 spectacular waterfalls. The waterfalls can be viewed after 4–6 hours of hiking. Kinsarvik is also a major access point many longer treks into the Hardangervidda National Park.
