Join us on a memorable day trip that offers some of the most beautiful scenery Norway has to offer – on water as well as on land! Only 10 people per trip on this exclusive fjord and mountain experience.
We sail from downtown Bergen through magnificent landscapes in Osterfjord to Modalen. The crew takes us safely through the strong currents of the shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait. The farther into the fjord we get, the steeper and more fascinating the mountain landscape becomes. Along the way, the captain will steer the boat’s bow so close to a waterfall that you might get your face doused with its delightful spray!
After a beautiful fjord cruise, we arrive in Modalen. This is one of Norway’s smallest municipalities with less than 400 inhabitants. The village of Mo lies nestled between the mountains and the fjord with old white charming wooden houses and a beautiful wooden church. The mountain guide takes us on a short drive from Mo to the starting point of the hike to “The Castle”. We now leave the main road and start working our way up the mountain along a hiking trail. The hike takes about one hour each way and has a vertical gain of 200 meters. In some places the hiking trail might be wet, so we recommend sturdy and waterproof hiking shoes. From the top you will have time to enjoy your packed lunch and the wonderful view of the fjord landscapes that we just sailed through.
Our experienced mountain guide ensures a memorable and safe mountain trek. The guide shares her/his knowledge and expertise about nature and the area, and does everything to ensure that you have a fantastic hike.
After a nice lunch break at the top, we head down to Mo again. Once back in the village, there will time for refreshments on the pier or a refreshing swim in the fjord, before leaving by boat back to Bergen.
