Nicknamed the King of Fjords, the Sognefjord is the world’s second longest fjord. It extends 204 km inland (127mi). The cliff walls along the fjord rise as high as 1,300 m (4265 ft). The remains of abandoned transhunt farms add to the cultural dimension.

11 fjord villages
On the fjord cruise between Bergen and Flåm, the catamaran makes 11 short stops in fjord villages along the way. Included in the stops are villages like Balestrand and Vik. Each small village has its own special identity and story to tell.
You have several hours of free time to explore Flåm on your own. The village has a wide selection of sights to see, places to explore and local food to eat. Did you know Flåm boasts Scandinavia's longest zipline?
Lean back and enjoy the beauty of the fjord from the comfortable seats on a modern catamaran. If you want to take pictures or get closer to the landscape you travel through, step out on the open deck. Pro tip: bring an extra jacket in case of winds.
On your way through the wild nature of the Sognefjord you can experience a multitude of wildlife. Porpoises are patrolling the waters, while golden eagles, gyrfalcons, goshawk and white-tailed sea eagles soar in the air.
