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.
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.
Sights on the trip
Whether you choose to begin or end your tour in Bergen, you should definitely spend at least a couple of days 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.

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.

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.
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.
Here at Go Fjords, we want you to have an enjoyable travel experience which meets your expectations in every way. With this in mind, please read through our general conditions of travel before departure.
