The fjord tour:
We depart from Bergen city center, watching the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bryggen from the seaside with the beautiful backdrop of the seven mountains surrounding the city, including Mount Fløyen and Mount Ulriken.

We then slowly cruise up the fjords from Bergen. The scenery changes gradually from when we leave the second largest city in Norway, passing the suburbs Sandviken and Eidsvåg, to when we arrive at the narrow remote fjords and villages with beautiful waterfalls. At the waterfall in Modalen you can shower under the waterfall onboard the boat, or taste the fresh mountain water. The atmosphere shifts from busy city life, to a quiet and pristine landscape and surroundings.

We can dock in the village of Mo for a break, where you can explore the village on your own.
