Fjord Escort, A Road Trip To Northern Norway

Bergen is called the Gateway to the Fjords for a reason, and once on board a boat, you get the perfect view of what Bergen and Fjord Norway is best known for – majestic mountains, deep fjords, glaciers, waterfalls and a culturally and historically interesting coastline. The capital of Western Norway is ideally situated between the two biggest fjords in Norway, the Hardangerfjord and the Sognefjord, and a wide range of day trips and half-day trips to the best scenic experiences in the region start at the historic Fish Market in the centre of Bergen. The fjord cruise to the beautiful Mostraumen has become one of Bergen’s most popular boat trips. In just 3.5 hours, you make it all the way up the 27-kilometre Osterfjord to idyllic Modalen, with its crystal clear water, steep mountains, beautiful waterfalls and small farms and villages beautifully situated in the landscape. On the boat trip to Mostraumen, you get to experience the fjord landscape at close range, and when the waterfalls are in spate, you can even feel the spray on your face and taste the pure mountain water. All the way back to the Hanseatic era the coast and fjords in and around Bergen have been a major international attraction. Boat trips in the region have therefore become a must for you who wish to experience nature at close range. Credit: VisitNorway.com
