Overview
Details

Experience the spectacular fjord landscape in Nordhordland on this three-hour fjordcruise from Bergen to the narrow strait Alverstraumen.

On the first part of the cruise you get a great view of several of the historic sites in the city, including Bergenhus Fortress, Mariakirken (St. Mary's church) and Bryggen, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The boattrip continues through the magnificent and varied nature in Western Norway in the City Fjord, the Salhus Fjord and the Kverna Fjord towards the spectacular Alverstraumen. Alverstraumen is a strait in Alver municipality. The strait is between 100 and 200 meters wide and one kilometer long, and is characterized by strong tidal currents. On the way through the strait we pass a labyrinth of larger and smaller islands and islets.

Departure point:
