A relaxing fjord cruise, a guided tour through a rural village, lunch buffet and a historical stave church. These are some of the ingredients making up this trip combining some of the best Fjord Norway has to offer - all in a single day!

The trip starts in Bergen. A relaxing fjord cruise on the Sognefjord where you can rest your eyes on white capped mountains, blue water, green farms and local wildlife. There is a reason why this beautiful fjord, which is Norway’s longest and deepest fjord has been described by National Geographic as ‘the world’s most iconic destination’

Vik is located on the southern shore of the Sognefjord. The village steeped in culture and history, has roots back to the Viking Age. Today it is home to 2,400 people.

You have 5 hours at your hand to explore the village. During your visit you will enjoy a guided village tour, sample Norwegian cheese (traditional Gamalost) and savor a lunch buffet at Blix Hotel. More details are available in the itinerary below.

Included in your ticket is also the entrance to the historical Hopperstad Stave Church. You will make your way to the chuch on foot (approx. 15 minute easy walk from Blix Hotel), where a guide is waiting to show you around.

In the afternoon the boat will depart from Vik in the same place as where you got off when you first arrived.

Cheesy fact: Gamalost from Vik has earned the EU labeled Protected Designated Origin label in recognition of its role in Norway’s traditional food heritage. In 2018 it also earned a bronze medal in the World Cheese Awards.
