Fjord Cruise to Mostraumen
Join this epic Bergen tour to see the scenic Oster Fjord and the narrow Mostraumen. Board a comfortable, modern catamaran for the trip to the innermost part of the Oster Fjord, right into the narrow Mostraumen, with its strong current. Boats are just able to pass through, which is an experience in itself.
This spectacular tour from Bergen takes you through the unforgettable scenery of western Norway's Hordaland province to tiny Modalen, all the way up the fjord. Enjoy the panoramic view of Bergen when leaving the wharf on the way to the fjord. This trip features many stunning waterfalls and narrow fjords surrounded by sheer mountains. You'll also have the opportunity to feel the refreshing spray on your face if they are at peak flow. Your captain will nudge the bow right up to a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water for you to taste before turning back in Modalen and retracing our route through the magnificent landscape.
This Norwegian adventure offers unforgettable panoramic views of the country's unparalleled natural beauty. You will not want to miss this scenic adventure so book early!

On a cloudy and off and on rainy day the 15-17 mile cruise into the fjord was outstanding. It was comfortable and the pontoon craft was quite nice. Snack bar on board as well. Scenic picture taking opportunities. We enjoyed this excursion very much and we are savvy mature travelers. Thanks AMEX for a quality experience.
The excursion itself was excellent. We really enjoyed the cruise down the fjord. However, our instructions were to grab a cab to from the dock to reach where the cruise started.....about 10 or 15 minutes away by cab. It was more like a 10 block walk, we spent unnecessary dollars on cab ride. Better info needed about distance.
Nice cruise. Wish the announcements were clearer. If we hadn't moved, we wouldn't have known we were at the spot to collect water. Unfortunately, we were told we that the water was unsafe to drink.

Although the weather was very changeable, this was a relaxing way to see a fjord and adjacent valleys close up. The waterfalls were in full force and a sip of one of them was a great way to complete the cruise. Take layers of clothing, and don't neglect ears, hands and head. The air was bracing and the best views are from the windy top deck. July, 2017
