Come along on an unforgettable fjord excursion and experience the beauty of authentic Norwegian nature. This fjord cruise is an essential addition to the program of any traveller that wishes to behold the allure of the archetypical Norwegian fjord.
Departing from Bergen, your adventure begins as you sail up the 27-kilometre long Osterfjorden Fjord in the Hordaland province. The scenery en route consists of steep mountains and powerful waterfalls, which you will venture so close to that you can feel the spray of their mist on your face.
The mountain water that feeds these falls is pure enough to drink, and as the ship sails with its bow right up to the falls, your guide will use a container to catch some of the ice-cold water for you to sample.
At the end of the fjord nests Modalen, home to only 380 residents, marking it as the second smallest municipality in all of Norway. Here you will make a short stop to catch a glimpse of the local fjord life, where picturesque and colourful wooden houses line the harbour, with a boat parked at every dock.
As you venture back through the fjord, you will enter through the narrow Mostraumen strait, where tall and majestic mountains close in from each side. Remember to bring your camera along for all the wonderful and unique photo opportunities of your excursion.
If you embark on this tour during the winter season, you will be treated to stunning ice formations and a different landscape altogether. The ice, however, can make it impossible to follow the regular route of the tour, in which case it will be adapted to the best courses available.
Don’t hesitate in booking your Norwegian adventure now. No matter the season, you are sure to enjoy your scenic cruise through the magnificent landscape of this beautiful fjord. Check availability by choosing a date.
The boats have sundecks and kiosks.
