Overview

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 by fjord cruise from Bergen. While traveling along the Sognefjord 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’

In Vik you will have 5 hours at your hand.

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.

Included in your ticket is the entrance ticket and a guided tour in historical Hopperstad Stave Church, cheese sampling (traditional Gamalost) at Tine Ostebar and a bowl of fresh fish soup at Blix Hotel.

If you fancy a guided village tour you may, at an additional cost, book a local guide who will take you on a historical journey among the many colourful wooden houses.

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.


Sights on the trip

  • Gamalost at TINE Meiriet Vik Cheese Bar

    Gamalost is a traditional Norwegian cheese said to have roots all the way back to the Viking Age. The cheese, that is based on fermented skimmed milk, is known to be low in fat and salt. Vik holds claim to the last remaining factory in Norway producing the cheese the old fashioned way. Prepare your tastebuds for a sample or two.

  • Fish Soup at Blix Hotel

    At Blix Hotel you will be served a bowl of delicious fish soup. Take a seat in the bright and airy restaurant and take a well deserved break from exploring.

  • Hopperstad Stave Church

    Hopperstad Stave Church was built around 1130 and is one of the oldest stave churches in Norway. The richly decorated facade is known as Viking handcraft. During the Middle Ages Stave Churches were present all over the country.
