Cruise down the coast through sheltered waters and stunning scenery as the boat whisks you from the bustling city life in Bergen, to peaceful and quiet Skjerjehamn.
In the early 1900s, Skjerjehamn was one of the largest harbors on the Westcoast of Norway. Today, it's a popular relaxation spot for those who love art, culture and good food.
Enjoy a cup of coffee and a warm heart shaped waffle - included in the ticket of course - while you explore Skjerjehamn's history and sights.
Learn about modern salmon production in Norway through this permanent outdoor exhibition, which consists of analog nature installations spread out along a 300 metres (984ft) long path.
The boat journeys through Alverstraumen, a narrow strait with strong tidal currents. The tidal whirlpools have through history fascinated and challenged the people who had to pass them on the important trading route in and out of Bergen.
Waffle and coffee
Heart shaped waffles are a treat with long traditions in Norway. Top it off with jam and sour cream, or maybe some local brunost (goat cheese). You get a waffle and coffee included in the ticket to Skjerjehamn.
Lean back and enjoy the beauty of the landscape from the comfortable seats on a modern catamaran. If you want to get closer to the natural scenery you travel through, step out on the open deck. On the route to Skjerjehamn you pass close to 1500 islands.
Statue of King Olav V
