Fjord cruise to Sognefjord, Fjærland and Bøyabreen Glacier

Experience the majestic Sognefjord, the idyllic Fjærlandsfjord and Bøyabreen Glacier on a full day tour by boat from Bergen.

On this tour you can experience coastal and fjord landscapes and Bøyabreen Glacier on the same day. Your journey starts in Bergen, and you can enjoy the wonderful coastal landscape among islands, islets and rocks, as well as the world-famous long stretch of Sognefjorden on your way to Balestrand. 

On your arrival at Balestrand – a village that is a favourite among artists – you change to a smaller sightseeing boat that takes you further into the idyllic Fjærlandsfjorden to Fjærland.

On the cruise from Balestrand to Fjærland, you may enjoy a good dinner, snacks and beverage while viewing the fantastic Fjærlandsfjord. (Food and drinks on your own cost)

When arriving in Fjærland, the tour continues by bus to the Norwegian Glacier Museum. This museum is an interactive museum that gives you knowledge about glacier and climate in a new innovative way.

After the visit to the museum, the tour continues up to Bøyabreen glacier – a branch of Jostedalsbreen glacier. Here you can take few photos and see up close how the movement of the glacier forms the landscape. So keep your camera ready for unique photos!

Afterwards the bus returns to Fjærland quay, and the tour returns by boat back to Balestrand and Bergen.

The trip back gives you the chance to reflect on the fact that these fjords were shaped several thousand years ago by ice.
