Go electric

It is pure. It is silent. It is powered by the very forces of nature you sail in.

Go on an unforgettable fjord cruise on the Nærøyfjord with a hybrid electric ship made of light carbon fibre, designed and constructed in the area. Its zigzag shape is meant to remind you of the typical footpaths you can see in the mountainsides along the fjord.
