Take the most majestic route when you travel from Bergen to Flåm. Cruise along Norway’s longest and deepest fjord for breathtaking views of Sognefjord and the stunning mountainous landscape cascading on either side. 

Making 11 stops in total, there are some beautiful quaint villages lining the shores of Sognefjord. You may choose to only travel part way along the fjord and stay in a village overnight before completing your journey. There are so many stunning towns and villages surrounding the fjord, we would recommend staying overnight and exploring the area.

The captivating scenery from Sognefjord is so magnificent and ever-changing, it is almost impossible to look away. As you cruise along the tranquil waters you will pass rocky shores, gushing waterfalls and jaw-dropping mountains. These views are so spectacular, they are sure to take your breath away. While it will be tempting to take out your camera, no photograph will ever compare to the awe-inspired feeling of being in the heart of Norway’s grandest fjord so sit back, relax and watch the beautiful landscape unfold around you.

Whether you want a return trip or need to travel one way between Bergen or Flåm, there is no better way to do it than on board a Sognefjord cruise. Book a one way or return ticket from Bergen or Flåm and prepare to be transported through the jaw-dropping fairytale scenery surrounding Norway’s longest fjord.

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

    Lined with stave churches, picturesque villages and lavish green landscapes, Sognefjord is a true wonder of the world. Formed before the Quaternary Glaciations, Sognefjord is Norway’s longest fjord and is sometimes nicknamed ‘king of the fjords’. It is also the deepest fjord in Norway with a depth of 1308m below sea level at its deepest point. There are many stunning villages, magnificent waterfalls and mountain walks along the fjord so you may want to stay over in a smaller village and spend more time on the fjord.

  • Flåm

    At the end of Aurlandsfjord, branching off Sognefjord, is the small but beautiful village of Flåm. Although there isn’t an abundance of hotels and restaurants, this picturesque village is an ideal starting point for many adventures in Norway. Take one of the world’s most incredible train journeys along the Flåm railway, cycle along Rallarvegen for one of the country’s most scenic bike rides or hike through the nearby mountains. Flåm is also in close proximity to the world’s narrowest fjord, Nærøyfjord, which is also a magnificent World Heritage site.

  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Sunscreen

Where to eat or buy food and drink

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
