The only real way to explore the Fjords around Bergen is to be within the Fjord itself.
This is a special tour for you and your family where you can venture the Fjords in a Zodiac RIB Boat. Here you have it all: Stunning natural beauty, no flag-waving crowds surrounding you, and the fjords entirely to yourself. You’ll never have to run to get the best seats, and you will have the guides sole attention from the start.
Many seniors think this is too fast or are afraid that they will freeze or bounce up and down. They could not be more wrong, as the Guides adapt the tour to fit the comfort of each group. The tour is in protected waters and sheltered within high mountains. Therefore the sea is almost still all the time. Seniors jump in the boat feeling 80 and jump back out feeling like a smiling 16-year-old again.
A private tour for you and your group alone — Not shared with strangers / other travellers
Hotel pick up / Port pick-up is inclusive
Train tickets from or to Bolstad station is inclusive (no designated seating)
Departure Point: Traveler pickup is offered
Your private, customized excursion combines the thrill of a mid-sized fast RIB boat ride with the breathtaking views of the Fjords north of Bergen.
This tour is the perfect way for cruise passengers to spend their day instead of being among the crowd that swarms the wharf shortly after their ship docks. Moreover, by choosing the half-day option, you are back in the city centre to enjoy the highlights there when there isn’t so much hassle in seeing the highlights that the rest of the crowd now is finished with.
Rigid-hulled inflatable boats (RIB) are often used by first responders and Navy SEALS because of their safety, manoeuvrability, and lightness resulting in potential high speeds. This is the ultimate way to venture into the less explored Fjords areas with that breathtaking scenery your online picture search has shown you. Even we have great speeds available, we adjust to the comfort level of each Group. The boats have a maximum capacity of 11 passengers, but to optimize your comfort, we never take more than five / six on board. In other words — you are having the business class experience on the Fjord.
All passengers are equipped with a wireless receiver that ensures that your Guide is heard at all times. You will also receive a full thermal suite that is designed for the Fjords and who has a built-in Life Jacket. As a double safety measurement — you will also have a secondary Life Jacket that automatically inflates in the unlikely event that you will be in contact with water.
The minimum age is 10 and each child must be with a grown-up while on this tour to ensure maximum safety on board. Adult pricing applies to all travellers.
All our guides are great with children and are at an age where they are experienced with their own from infants to adolescents. Children will be given responsibility under this tour and if deemed fit for the task, be allowed to control the boat or be given tasks as to moor the boat and so on. It is important that parents are instructing their young ones that while on a boat there is only one person in charge: The Pilot / Captain. This way we keep safety in focus all the time and children are active participants.
