This is a fjord cruise combining beautiful natural scenery, ancient history and culture in true Viking and trading spirit.
A time machine that whisks you away to the past, more than 1000 years. This is how many visitors feel when visiting Gulatinget – one of the world’s oldest Viking parliaments. The site was a meeting place for law and order for 500 years, and it played a key role in the unification of Norway.
Today a lovely park, “Tusenårsstaden” (Millennium site), has taken its place, where visitors can immerse themselves in Viking art, culture and history through the majestic “Tingveggen” installation (Parliament wall).
Be inspired by the nostalgia and powerful history as the boat anchors up at Skjerjehamn. This historical trade centre is situated in lovely surroundings on an islet off the tip of Sandøy in Gulen municipality. It’s no wonder that Skjerjehamn was named “gem of the year”.
This little spot was an important hub for trade in Western Norway. The place has had local residents since the 1500s, and a documented history from 1641. The local restaurant is widely known for its fish chowder filled with delicacies from the sea, which provides a backdrop for this dining venue.
Quoted prices apply to online bookings. An additional charge may apply on trips where purchasing on site is available.

Gulatinget was the largest “lagting" (Law Parliament) in Norway between 900 to 1300, and one of the largest and oldest "lagting" in the Nordic countries. This parliament was a legislative, executive and judicial power for the entire coastal region, as well as for Hallingdal, Setesdal and Valdres. Today, the site has been converted to a lovely park with traces of proud Viking traditions. Gulatinget is also the big brother of the world-renowned Thingvellir on Iceland.
A permanent outdoor exhibition on aquaculture that opened at Skjerjehamn in June 2018. Through analogue nature installations, you can learn about modern salmon production in Norway and its importance for the entire world in the future.
We recommend that you wear good walking/running shoes on this trip. You should also wear suitable clothing for the weather. Drinks are not included but are available to purchase on board the catamaran, in the restaurant at Skjerjehamn and in the cafeteria at Gulating.
