Cider Cruise Sognefjord
Combine Cider Tasting with Fjordx on a local farm with a beautiful Fjord Cruise and bike ride along the Sognefjord. Available each Saturday from 3rd of June - 26th of August (2023).
Together with the local farm Haug Gard, we have made a tour where you can combine tasting of different ciders and fruit wines from Odelsgut (Haug Gard), a bike ride on an electric bike along the Sognefjord and a beautiful Fjord Cruise from Fimreite to Sogndal.
Haug Gard and Odelsgut
Join a great farm experience and broaden your horizons in both Norwegian history, Norwegian cider and see what it's like to be a cider producer in Norway's oldest fruit district. In about 1.5 hours, you will get an insight into fruit growing, cider production, and hear more about the family farm's impressive history going all the way back to 1184 - the Battle of Fimreite, the bloodiest battle in Norwegian history between Magnus Erlingsson and King Sverre. You get to taste different ciders and fruit wines from Odelsgut - made with real love, as well as something light to eat. (Alcohol-free alternative is possible) You don't have to come to us in nice clothes, be a wine expert or have training as a pommelier. The most important thing is that you are thirsty for new adventures and ready to taste what cider really is. Here you will meet a pleasant and committed host who will give you an experience you won't forget.
The Fjord Cruise
The Fjord Cruise is a nice and exciting trip from Sogndal to Fimreite, with live guiding and story telling. During the Viking Age, this was the scenery for the dramatic battle between Magnus Erlingsson and Sverre Sigurdsson, where they fought over the right to be the King of Norway. 5000 soldiers took part in the battle, and 2160 men lost their lives.
In more recent history, the largest submarine-hunt in norwegian history took place here during the cold war.
