From Bergen: Osterfjord, Mostraumen and Waterfall Cruise

1. From Bergen: Osterfjord, Mostraumen and Waterfall Cruise

Experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of traveling through the majestic Norwegian fjords on a scenic boat tour departing from Bergen. Admire the verdant or ice-covered cliffs depending on the time of year and take in the mirror-like reflections from the water. Sali out from the city center of Bergen for a great view of the iconic Bryggen from the water. Float along the 27-kilometer-long Osterfjord surrounded by steep mountains and watch it narrow down into the shallow Mostraumen strait, with powerful currents. Get up close and personal with a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water to sample before turning back and returning to Bergen through the magnificent landscape. Sit back and relax on the sundeck or purchase a refreshing beer or wine from the kiosk.

Mostraumen: Fjord Cruise

2. Mostraumen: Fjord Cruise

See the stunning sights the Fjord has to offer on one of the most popular tours down the narrow Mostraumen. This scenic tour from the center of Bergen allows you to witness some memorable scenes of western Norway's Hordaland province to tiny Modalen, along the famous fjord. The tour gives amazing panoramic views of Bergen as you depart the wharf on the way to the fjord. This trip includes many beautiful waterfalls and narrow fjords whilst enjoying the picturesque mountains. If your tour is at peak flow you can feel the thrill of a refreshing spray. Whilst on board your catamaran, feel free to sit back and relax whilst purchasing a drink or two at the bar on board as you take in this breathtaking scenery.

Not only a great value for the price, but a wonderful tour of some of the most beautiful country you'll ever see. The length of the ride was just right, the boat was the perfect size and the crew was professional and courteous.
