Hiking - Full day

3. Hiking - Full day

JOIN A GREAT FULL DAY HIKE TO MOUNT OKSEN Fjord hikes in Norway are a popular activity nearly all year round. On this full day Fjord hiking tour up Mt Oksen we will take you off the beaten track, into some of the most scenic mountains in Hardangerfjord has to offer. With its to 1241m Mt. Oksen offers a spectacular view over four Fjords from the top. The Mt. Oksen trail begins in Tjoflot and starts by winding its way up and through some beautiful native forest. After a fairly challenging start and a demanding climb, the trail opens out above the tree line. There you start to get a glimpse of the spectacular views coming ahead. The higher you go the more rewarding the view. Reaching the top at 1241m you are rewarded with 360 degree views of Samlafjorden, Sørfjorden, Eidfjorden and Granvinsfjorden, as well as panoramic views on the mountain ridge surrounding Voss and Norways’s third largest glacier Folgefonna. Please note that Mt Oksen is a demanding hike that requires a good level of fitness and appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn. The trail climbs straight up 990m from the car park. There are no dangerous passages along the trail but there are two particularly steep parts between 400m and 600ml and towards the top again at 800m. One of the best Fjord hikes in Norway when you are in the area of Hardangerfjord, off the beaten track!

How often can you enjoy a private luxurious boat like this, with your own captain? Enter the fjords and immerse yourself in a fairytale-like world of natural beauty.

We cruise at slow speed, so you can enjoy the nature and silence all the way up to Modal village. When you arrive at the narrow fjords and remote towns of Modalen, you'll be steered right up to a waterfall to taste the mountain water.

Your next stop will be the charming village of Mo, where you can take a break if you want, and explore the town of 100 residents at your own, and grab something to eat. We warn you that you will not meet many people here, only some locals- as tis is a very remote ans quite village, with only one grocery-store, and a cafeteria. The last part of the cruise will take you to the breathtaking 90-meter waterfall of the cliff Fulufjallet National Park. Enjoy some more snacks and wine on board as you cruise back along the fjords to Bergen. If you want to try steering the boat, the captain will step aside while you take over the steering.

Despite the rain one of the highlights of our holiday! It's fantastic how close you get to different waterfalls and of course the view, even when it rains, is phenomenal. We even saw porpoises up close. Good and clear explanation about the environment from the friendly captain. Highly recommended!
