Electric bikes and cars are getting increasingly popular in Norway, electric cruise ferries are launched, and still other means of e-transport enable you to literally electrify most of your trip to make it quiet, smooth and, why not, social media-friendly.

Designed and made in Norway

“I’m proud to have been able to contribute to the development and building process”, captain Nauckhoff tells, and continues: “Many passengers tell me this is the trip of their life.”

Both ships have been locally constructed at the Brødrene Aa’s shipyard in the fjord town of Hyen, located in one of the Nordfjord’s sidearms. The company’s patented building techniques are exported to China and other countries.

The Future of the Fjords might be a brand-new prestige project, but that doesn’t mean that other novel or established electric transportation alternatives shine all over the country.

More and more hotels and other places that welcomes eco-attentive travellers have bikes or e-bikes for rent, ready to take you out to explore charming summer streets or nearby nature.

“Many passengers tell me this is the trip of their life.”

Get on a bike, tram, or train

Hotel Aak in Åndalsnes, a tiny city that calls itself “the mountaineering capital”, is one of several places in Norway that offers e-bikes for rent, with guided tours in surrounding, scenic landscapes. The electric engine will do most of the job when you pedal towards sites like the Rauma river, the Trollstigen winding mountain road, and the Trollveggen vertical rock face.

Go electric in the middle of Norway

Dynamic Variation:

The capital of Oslo has well-developed tram and tube systems criss-crossing the city and even climbing the surrounding hills for those who want to go skiing or hiking. In addition, new stretches of cycling lanes are being opened in a speed never seen before.

The tube in Oslo welcomes bikes on board for free, except in the rush hours, as long as you have that valid ticket for yourself in your pocket, of course.

More e-fun to come

All in all, these are just some examples of a fast-forward-moving electrification of an entire country, and local tour offices will be happy to point out even more useful e-fun.

“My motto is to work with beautiful things that I care about, and this ship is undoubtedly that kind of project,” states captain John Nauckhoff of the Future of the Fjords.

“The view of the fjord landscape from the electric ferry stays mighty regardless of the season or the weather. Remember, you won’t see a rainbow on a sunny day.”

The experience will always be, well, electric.

Sustainability in Norway

Take only pictures, keep only memories

Norway is a country of outstanding natural beauty. Preserving this landscape, its communities, and the way of life, is essential for locals and visitors alike.

Norwegian philosophy is very much that conservation is everyone’s responsibility.

The locals try to leave as small a footprint as possible. Leave it as you would like to find it is the mantra, regardless of where you are.

It is all about the quality of life. Not only now, but for the time to come as well.
