    Bergen Itinerary

    No other tour in Bergen has experienced similar growth in either online sales or number of reviews from the travelers that have done the tour before you. The Veafjord is completely "under the radar" for the large crowds, and has, as a result, become a winner for travelers seeking the nature that Norway is so very well known for.

    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. Chose from a half or full-day tour, (see options) that starts from Bergen City Centre with mixed-mode of travel between private car, Rib Boat and Train. This way you get the best from each way of sightseeing the Fjords - all in a compact tour that really "has it all".

    The price includes a free of charge hotel or port pick up, a private guided tour in a RIB Boat and train tickets so you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying your stay. 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 center 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, maneuverability, and lightness resulting in potential high speeds. This is the ultimate way to venture 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.

    Safety & Comfort 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 suit that is designed for the Fjords and who has a built-in Life Jacket. As a double safety measurement - you will additionally have a secondary Life Jacket that automatically inflates in the unlikely event that you will be in contact with water.

    Please note:  The minimum age is 5 and each child must be with a grown-up while on this tour to ensure maximum safety on board. Adult pricing applies to all travelers.

    Groups with children: 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 steer 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.

    Oslofjord Itinerary

    No other boat tour in Norway has experienced similar growth in either online sales or number of reviews from the travelers that have done the tour before you. The Oslofjord has much more to offer than just the "of the shelf" visit to walk on the Opera's roof. And this tour will let you explore the fjord from within the surface itself. Here you visit places that are completely under the radar for the majority of travelers and end up in the stunning Oscarsborg Fortress that is placed in the Fjords most natural place to defend the Norwegian Capital from enemies. 

    Your private, customized excursion combines the thrill of a mid-sized fast RIB boat ride with the breathtaking views of the Fjords itself while traveling along the shoreline. Chose from a half or full-day tour, (see options) that starts from Oslo City Centre with mixed-mode of travel between private car and RIB Boat. This way you get a hassle-free tour directly from your hotel reception. Remember: 70 % of the planet is covered by water. Not taking to the Fjord, deprives you of 70% of the opportunities of discovery.

    The price includes a free of charge hotel or port pick up, a private guided tour in a RIB Boat and entrance to Oscarsborg Fortress so you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying your stay. This tour is the perfect way for cruise passengers to spend their day instead of being among the crowd that swarms the city shortly after their ship docks. Moreover, by choosing the half-day option, you are back in the city center 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.

    They cancelled our cruise this afternoon after planning a 3 week vacation around it. Our disappointment is beyond disbelief. I believe this is a scam! Good luck!

    Response from NorwayFjordTravel, Owner at Private Fjordcruise: Bergen & Oslofjord by Zodiac Speed Boat
    Responded Sep 20, 2019
    Dear Madam. We are sorry for the inconvenience - and I believe you did not hear what we said on the bad cell connection. We have suffered a pontoon puncture in the large RIB boat and therefore could not do the cruise holding the safety standards we are deemed by law to uphold. We are truly sorry that you choose to leave a 1-star review when the cancellation is merely done to keep safety standards and to make sure that our guests are having a good experience. We also did offer a replacement, where your large group was split in two - but you declined the offer. As agreed, you have been fully reimbursed and this was initiated promptly after you did not want to do the available replacement cruise. This is NOT a SCAM. It is good customer service to put your safety in focus, and we are sorry if the bad connection did not make this be clearly presented. We find it strange that you leave a one-star review based on this, but acknowledge your right to express your opinion.

    We fulfilled a dream of seeing the fjords on a delightful excursion with Bjorn. Our trip began with personable and kind Mario picking us up at our hotel. He made sure we had a rest stop along the way. Tour guide Bjorn was waiting for us at the docking area and helped us get into
