Excellent trip! Picked up from our hotel in a Porsche and water provided. Stop at a lovely waterfall on the way and the tour guide at Folgefonna was excellent. Knowledgeable, and plenty of breaks. Make sure to take some sandwiches with you as there's a sit down just under half way for a snack. Journey back was just as good and the taxi driver was lovely. He joined us for the hike also. Couldn't fault the trip or the team at Folgefonna. Only negative is it says equipment included - we lost our luggage and contacted the provider who said everything was included and we wouldn't need to buy anything. They provided waterproofs, gloves and snow boots with crampons but nothing for warmth so glad I'd already bought a hoodie. Would recommend, highly enjoyed!

Fantastic tour with everything well planned by Frode and our guide Baul. I was travelling with my parents. We don’t have to worry about the tickets or where to board the train, boat etc, and the car is always waiting at the station and the port to take us to the next location. And our guide is very knowledgeable and shared many interesting cultural and historical information with us. The tour went very smoothly and we were lucky enough that the sun finally came out so we could take some really nice photos at the view point. Thanks very much! We had a great time!

It was a wonderful experience. The wheather forecast was terrible and we were really afraid of the freezing temperatures. It turned out to be a very cold day but at least it stayed dry!!!! The different views were amazing. The guide was incredible and made the whole experience unforgettable. Arne is a very charming person

Super fun, saw lots of fjords and sailed under bridges throughout the Bergen area. All staff on board were very kind and we were able to sit inside or outside to enjoy the views. The gateway to the fjords did not disappoint!

A fantastic experience, in the most beautiful weather.
