The great fjords were formed by glacier tongues, that through several ice ages were carved into the Norwegian landscape.
Bergen & Modalen
The Modal / Mostraumen cruise is the best one-day private fjord cruise in Bergen.
Nestled amidst the heart of the Norwegian fjords, Bergen is the perfect starting point for an awe-inspiring one-day cruise to one of the world’s most remarkable scenic attractions. Bergen, being situated between the magnificent Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord, offers a gateway to Norway’s longest and most breathtaking fjords.
The 5th longest fjord in the world.
As the second largest fjord in Norway, the Hardangerfjord encapsulates the very essence of this stunning country. Here, you’ll find a rich tapestry of culinary traditions, cider production, cultural heritage, world-famous landmarks, and unparalleled natural wonders, definitely making it a sight to behold.
There’s very few places in the world where you can go skiing and swim in a fjord on the same day. Regardless of the season, the «Wow» factor remains constant. It’s no wonder that the Hardangerfjord has captivated tourists, artists, and writers for centuries. With its unique and awe-inspiring beauty, the best way to enjoy the Hardangerfjord’s beauty is surely aboard a private yacht.
A masterpiece of nature’s work
A fjord, with its distinctive U-shaped undersea valley, often cradles itself amidst dramatic mountainous scenery. In Hardanger, glimpses of the Folgefonna Glacier can still be seen crowning the mountaintops. We highly recommend combining your tour with both a fjord cruise and a glacier visit, an extraordinary dual adventure which can be done in a single day.
This enchanting landscape showcases snow-clad mountains, serene blue glaciers, deep gorges, cascading waterfalls, and charming villages resembling green pearls adorning the fjord’s edge. Recognized for its beauty and significance, this scenery is rightfully placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. We are prepared to transport you deep into the heart of the fjord all year around, to provide you with an authentic connection with nature.
In 1830, Charles Boilieu Elliott stood atop a steep mountainside overlooking the Hardangerfjord, Folgefonna glacier, picturesque waterfalls and quaint villages. His words still ring true today, describing this captivating region as a «masterpiece of nature’s work».
Although he couldn’t embark on a fjord cruise with us, many tourists have since visited this region. The spellbinding scenery and rich local culture of the Hardangerfjord have captivated artists for centuries, including renowned composer Edvard Grieg, who found inspiration during his summer visits to Ullensvang, where he penned some of his most renowned compositions.
