Highlights

Sights on the trip

  • Bergen

    Whether you choose to begin or end your cruise in Bergen, you should definitely spend at least a day here. As Norway’s second largest city and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Bergen has plenty to offer. Known as the gateway to the fjords on the southwestern coast of Norway, Bergen is surrounded by fjords, mountains and Norway’s traditional colourful wooden buildings. Take the funicular or cable car to the top of one of Bergen’s mountains, visit the fish market or immerse yourself in culture in one of many museums.

  • Sognefjord

    Norway's longest and deepest fjord stretches for more than 200 kilometres. The inner part of the fjord is located at the lower part of Jotunheimen, and the area is cited by many as being one of the most beautiful in the world. That isn't hard to believe.

What to wear

The weather changes quickly in Norway, especially on the fjords, and that is no different during the summer. As this is a casual cruise and there is plenty of undercover seating, comfortable everyday wear is perfectly fine. However, you may want to go out onto the deck to take photographs so take extra layers, a waterproof jacket and wear sensible shoes in case the deck is wet.

You may also need:

  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Sunscreen

Where to eat or buy food and drink

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in both Flåm and Bergen for you to enjoy a meal before and after your trip. As you will be on the boat for quite some time, you may want to take some snacks and drinks on the boat with you. There are a number of supermarkets in Bergen and shops in Flåm where you can purchase a packed lunch prior to your trip. There is also a cafe on board the boat if you need any further refreshments.

Additional information

There are a number of beautiful villages along Sognefjord so you may wish to stop along the fjord and spend the night. Therefore, when booking your tickets, you should make separate bookings for the journeys you will take on each day because you can only travel on the date stated on your ticket.
