Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Bergenhus Fortress, Bergen Norway

This is a short round-trip by car to the amazing Osterfjord area.

Our professional driver-guide picks you up at your hotel in Bergen centre (or cruise ship port) and our tour starts. Departure is usually at 9:00am unless otherwise agreed. 

Leaving Bergen we drive past some of the sights. The Medieval fortress of Bergenhus is one of them.

Stop At: Osteroy Bridge, North Sea, Bergen, Norway

From Bergen, we will travel to the Osterfjord – a fjord that surrounds one on the largest continental islands in Europe – Osterøy island, 127 square miles (330 km2).

Our first stop is at the viewpoint right after crossing the bridge over the fjord.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Dale of Norway Factory Outlet, Vaksdal Municipality, Norway

Returning to mainland, we move on to Dale, where the famous sweater factory is located – “Dale of Norway”. We can visit the factory outlet and maybe pick up some woolen souvenirs there.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Skipshelleren, 5727 Vaksdal, Norway

From Dale we take one of lesser-known roads going north: steep mountains, narrow fjords and secluded villages along the way.

Our next stop is at the Stone Age settlement on the Bolstadfjord: a short walk is required.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Hesjedalsfossen, Fv569 540, 5727 Stamnes, Norway

Moving on we come to yet another narrow fjord – the Eidsfjord – and make a stop at the magical Hesjedalsfossen waterfall: one of the most iconic sights, and yet an offbeat attraction.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Modalen Post i Butikk, MO, Coop Marked Modalen, 5729 Modalen, Norway

We continue our journey and reach Mo (pronounced “Moo”) – a cosy village between two waterfalls: Geitaskaret and Kvernhusfossen.

We can have our lunch here – at a small harbour restaurant (during wintertime from October to April the restaurant is closed – we can pick up some sandwiches, snacks and beverages along the way, your driver-guide will bring hot coffee/tea).

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Kvernhusfossen, Fv569 71, 5729 Modalen, Norway

Leaving Mo, we make a short stop at the Kvernhusfossen waterfall before returning to Bergen – an almost non-stop 1.5-hour drive. 

Our driver-guide will inform you about life in Norway, its history and culture, and introduce you to the Norwegian classical, folk and pop music – the perfect soundtrack to the journey.

In the winter, some of the waterfalls and fjords may be frozen.

Car on this tour is one of our Mercedes minivans. When only 3 people are going on this tour, we may use a smaller vehicle. All of our cars have Passenger Transport Licence.

Duration: 15 minutes
