This was a fantastic way to see the Fjord. I booked the "rib boat fjord tour" as part of a Norway in a nutshell package. Turns out it was a 3 hour Fjord safari that included a stop at Urundel to taste the local cheeses.
Our Norwegian guide/ boat driver was full of local knowledge and stories from Norse mythology, historical facts through to current information about the locals. The boat trip was just the right mix of skipping over the wake of larger ships, and slowing to a stop so that everyone could get photos of waterfalls.
Boat seats 12 and waterproof suits and goggles are provided. The suits have big pockets to hold phones, cameras etc. They do have lockers to store things you don't need on the boat but these are shared with the rest of the people.on your tour and not suitable for luggage.

We were lucky enough to be able to book the 2.5 hour safari in the afternoon. The attention to detail for keeping us all warm whilst enjoying the boat safari was amazing. Eric was a fantastic guide, imparting a wealth of knowledge. We enjoy the cheese tasting for our stop at Undredal. What a great 2.5 hours. Thanks to all the great team.

The waterfall hike led by Rose (their first, they informed us, you’d never had guessed!) was amazing. Despite a couple of set backs like horses being in the wrong place which meant we couldn’t go via the normal route, Rose made the whole experience fun and interesting, telling us facts the whole way and laughing with us like friends. The actual waterfall was beautiful and so powerful, we got soaked and it was amazing! After climbing back down Rose gave us a hot toddy and a chocolate bar and advice on what else to do in Flåm, I would 100% recommend this experience and a heartfelt thank you to Rose for a brilliant morning.

Excellent trip, guide Olaf was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife.
We saw seals and a golden eagle which my husband was keen to see, Olaf spotted one on the way back and slowed boat down to show us. He also showed us where they are often seen.
The village visit was lovely so great to learn all about goats cheese.
Thanks for a great trip.

Snowshoe Hiking with Paulina and Eirich was a great experience! My husband and I are both seniors over 65 who exercise moderately. I was a little concerned with the uphill grades because of my weak knees, but using the poles to help ground me and having Paulina at my back assuring me of her support should I fall, gave me the confidence to brave the first half of our uphill hike. The second half was a breeze. Eirich gave clear instructions on how to use the snowshoes at the start. Our ride with him in the minivan through Aureland, on the winding mountain roads and viewing the breathtaking fjords, was both impressive and very informative. The welcomed half mark break with traditional snacks was much appreciated. Paulina and Eirich made this once in a lifetime experience memorable with their enthusiasm, knowledge, and attentiveness. I definitely would recommend Snowshoe Hiking with Fjord Safaris. Start your winter adventure in Norway, here in Flam!

We went on the Fjord extended boat trip today, the team were all very friendly. We were provided with overalls, hats, gloves etc. to keep us warm. Irven (apologies for the spelling) was our guide, he took us on a delightful trip around the Fjord providing us with fun facts along the way. He was very engaging and helped with questions. We thought it was a great way to get up and close around the Fjord and would highly recommend Fjord Safari. Thanks Irven for a wonderful trip!

Everything is well organized. On arrival, we got safety instructions and special wayer tight suits. In our group there was even one small baby; no problems - the mother and baby were well equipped. The best is our skipper/tour guide; he was knowledgeable and kind yet also funny. Being from the area, one can sense his love for the region and this beautiful nature. Furthermore he paid extra time to explain some things in Spanish for my companion… I can wholeheartedly recommend this tour.

We did it in August. It was raining a lot and we were quite worried it would be a tough 2h15 in the cold rain. But in fact it revealed to be an excellent experience. All the staff there, including the guide, but not only, is very friendly and caring, helping everyone and cautious to give the best time to all. The trip was interesting and fun. Of course we would have liked to have done it in better weather conditions, but it would have been a mistake to skip it. We fully recommend.

We booked the RIB tour of Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord as part of a cruise ship excursion. Windstar cruise line had it listed as an option. Our guide and boat driver was Paulina and she could not have been more pleasant. Several stops along the way to talk about geography, the small towns and points of interest and to take pictures. Spectacular scenery. Due to time constraints, we had to choose between this and the Flam railway. I can’t speak to how the railway scenery was, but I don’t imagine it could beat what we saw. Plus, only 8 people on the boat with no windows vs. 2 million on the train competing for windows.

Eirik was our guide for this trip and we loved it.
We had a lot of luck. The weather was mild, no to little wind meant calm water and sunshine.

I was wondering if we should go for a boat tour with a bigger boat, where there is heating... but the guys from fjord safari gave of tons of warm and also fun clothes to put on but made sure to get there warm already because it's still winter.

The tour had other advantages as well. Eirik was able to move us closer to the waterfalls and looked with us for seals. Luckily we found some =)
They were cute!

The goat cheese tasting was cool and informative, too. Let's see what our family will say to the different ones we bring home with.
We learned a lot and will remember this beautiful day in the fjord.
