A relaxing fjord cruise, a rural village and a historical stave church. This full day trip combines 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.
In Vik you will have 5 hours at your hand to explore the village on your own.
Included in your ticket is entrance to the historical Hopperstad Stave Church, as well as cheese sampling (traditional Gamalost) and a cold lunch buffet at Blix Hotel.
See the itinerary for more details.
If you fancy a guided village tour you may, at additional cost, book a local guide who will take you on a historical journey among the many colorful wooden houses.
You can easily add a guide in the itinerary.
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.
