Island Hopping to Bulandet and Værlandet

1x Adult

0,-

Travel like a local! Hop aboard a postal boat and cruise through narrow straits to idyllic islands and the remote communities of Bulandet. Jump on and off the boat, and explore the islands on your own.

This full day trip hopping from island to island, starts in Bergen by express boat. You'll be dropped off at a place called Krakhella, where a bus transfers you to the quaint village of Hardbakke in Solund. 

From here, you will board a postal boat named Stjernsund. In addition to delivering mail, the boat transports passengers, school children and sometimes even sheep. The captain will share local history of these remote communities as you cruise past unique rock formations, hundreds of small islands and straits so narrow you wonder how even the smallest boat will manage to navigate through.

Once you've arrived at the island of Bulandet you can enjoy lunch at the local cafe, or rent a bike to explore the area between Bulandet and Askvoll in Værlandet.

If you don’t rent a bike, you can enjoy your free time in the Bulandet area. A bus will take you from Bulandet to Askvoll.

From Askvoll you will return to Bergen by express boat.
