Join our round-trip cruise from Bergen in spectacular fjord scenery. This fantastic tour takes you up the 27-kilometer long Osterfjord. Underway, the fjord narrows between steep mountains as we bring you safely through the powerful currents of the shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait. We sail our bow right up to a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water for you to sample before turning back and returning to Bergen through the magnificent landscape. Our modern, comfortable boats have sundecks and kiosks offering refreshments, including beer and wine. Departure from Zacharias Bryggen / Fish market in Bergen
