Osterfjord: Our most recommended tours and activities

From Bergen: Osterfjord, Mostraumen and Waterfall Cruise

1. From Bergen: Osterfjord, Mostraumen and Waterfall Cruise

Experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of traveling through the majestic Norwegian fjords on a scenic boat tour departing from Bergen. Admire the verdant or ice-covered cliffs depending on the time of year and take in the mirror-like reflections from the water. Sali out from the city center of Bergen for a great view of the iconic Bryggen from the water. Float along the 27-kilometer-long Osterfjord surrounded by steep mountains and watch it narrow down into the shallow Mostraumen strait, with powerful currents. Get up close and personal with a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water to sample before turning back and returning to Bergen through the magnificent landscape. Sit back and relax on the sundeck or purchase a refreshing beer or wine from the kiosk.

From Bergen: Private Mostraumen Fjord and Waterfall Cruise

2. From Bergen: Private Mostraumen Fjord and Waterfall Cruise

Experience narrow fjords, steep mountainsides, and mighty waterfalls with a local guide on a private cruise to Osterfjord on a day trip from Bergen. Get onboard a Premium Explorer 50 Yacht and witness the picturesque Mostraumen where boats are just able to pass through. Set sail from Bergen's Fish Market, as your guide points to some of the oldest and most relevant historical sites in the city, including the medieval fortress Bergenhus, St. Mary's church, and the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Hanseatic wharf. From there, sail through the western Norwegian scenery in the Fjord City, Salhusfjorden, and Osterfjord towards the stunning Mostraumen Channel. Sip on soft drinks, and soak in the views as the captain safely steers the boat through steep mountainsides, a maze of islands, and cascading waterfalls. Venture deeper into the fjord and see the mountain landscape become steeper and narrower. Get up close to waterfalls and feel the cold spray on your face. With a little luck, you can spot seals sunbathing on the rocky shore so keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife around you. Deep in the Osterfjord, take a break and tuck into Lapskaus, a traditional Norwegian meat and vegetable stew.

First time in Bergen and I’ve never done a cruise before so I was judgemental about it. But I was so wrong! I loved every second to every minute of the tour! Even if I did get wet especially at the water fall which was amazing! Thank you for an incredible tour

On time, beautiful views, most other travelers respectful to move along and let others capture views. Clean facilities. Cold as expected for October. Just right time length.

My favorite day in Bergen (and Norway). It is suitable for all people interested in exploring the entrance to the famous Norway fjords.

Excellent afternoon out on the fjords, great crew and beautiful sights.

beautiful scenery, comfortable seats and friendly staff
