Experience fjords and mountains on a 3,5 hour cruise to Osterfjord and the picturesque Mostraumen where boats are just able to pass through!
Deep fjords, sheer mountains, mighty waterfalls and powerful currents – all year round!
The cruise starts from Zachariasbryggen, right next to the well-known Fish Market in Bergen. On the way from Bergen you will have a good view of the famous Bryggen, the old city of Bergen along with the rest of Bergen`s harbour basin.
The cruise continues under Nordhordalandsbrua up the 27-kilometer long Osterfjorden in Hordaland province. Innermost in that deep fjord is Modalen, the second smallest municipality in Norway with about 380 residents. Underway, the fjord narrows between the steep mountains as we bring you safely through the strong currents of the shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait. You’ll also see waterfalls that can give your face a really refreshing shower at times of peak water flow! We sail our bow right up to a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water for you to sample before turning back in Modalen and retracing our route through the magnificent landscape.
Our boat is a modern catamaran with a big sun deck. There is disabled access on the boat, and you can bring a stroller. A kiosk on board sells beverages, snacks and small dishes. Audio guiding in several languages.
