Fjord cruise & guided mountain hike to "Slottet"

Combine a fjord cruise through beautiful landscapes with narrow fjords and steep mountainsides with a guided mountain hike to "Slottet".

Join us on a memorable day trip that offers some of the most beautiful scenery Norway has to offer - on water as well as on land! Only 10 people per trip on this exclusive fjord and mountain experience.

The boat leaves from the Fish Market in Bergen and returns to the same place.

We sail from downtown Bergen through magnificent landscapes in Osterfjord to Modalen, Norway's second smallest municipality. The crew takes us safely through the strong currents of shallow and narrow Mostraumen straits. The farther into the fjord we get, the steeper and more powerful the mountain landscape becomes. Along the way, the captain will steer the boat’s bow so close to a thundering waterfall that you might get your face doused with its delightful spray!

After a fjord cruise packed with enjoyment, we arrive at Modalen at 11:30. Modalen is one of Norway's smallest municipalities with less than 400 inhabitants, a small village nestled between the mountains and the fjord with old white charming wooden houses, and a beautiful wooden church. The guide takes us on a short drive before we start the mountain hike to “Slottet”. The hike takes about one hour each way, has a vertical gain of 200 meters and is a wonderful adventure! From the top you can enjoy a beautiful view of fjord landscapes that you just sailed through.

Our experienced mountain guide ensures a rich and safe mountain trek. The guide freely shares his knowledge and expertise about nature and the area and does everything to ensure that you have a fantastic hike.

After a nice lunch break at the top, we head down to Modalen again. Once back in the village, there will time for refreshments on the pier or a refreshing swim in the fjord, before leaving by boat back to Bergen.
