Magnificent waterfalls, lively country villages, a beautiful mountain pass and a captivating fjord cruise. These are some of the ingredients of the day trip, which combines some of the best the area has to offer of both fjord and mountains. 

Both cameras and mobile phones will constantly be busy, due to a wealth of photo opportunities. The fjord cruise transports visitors along the famed Sognefjorden, where you can rest your gaze on mountains, water and local birdlife. It's no wonder this majestic fjord, the longest in Norway, is known as "the king of the fjords". 

Vikafjellet divides Voss and Vik – mountain village from fjord village. This well-known mountain pass offers lovely variations of deep blue lakes, pink and green fields of heather, and white patches of snow. A brief stop at the top will give visitors time to roll a couple of solid snowballs or a miniature snowman.  

Beautiful Vik on the southern side of Sognefjorden has 2400 local residents. With roots dating back to the Viking age, this little village is the only place in Norway that produces "gamalost", a traditional Norwegian cheese. 

In region of Voss, visitors will encounter a majestic mountain landscape, where white water rafts sweep down powerful rivers, and skydivers are a natural element of the sky.  

The round trip begins and ends in Bergen city centre. We transport you between Bergen and Vik in a comfortable catamaran, and from Vik to Bergen you can relax in a bus seat. You are free to choose the direction of your trip – whether you want to start by bus to Voss, or by boat headed for Sognefjorden and Vik.
