It’s just like the ferry running insides Bergen, but the scenes near Flam are stunning. The ferry will close up to waterfalls or slow down around attractions and have some introductions there. Those are in Norwegian mostly but in English sometimes too. If you’re lucky enough, you have both trips under the sun so you’ll use up your mobile’s storage for pictures and videos. Our trip was sunny going to Flam but it’s raining when returned. But it is still well worth the trip. If we knew that we can take ferry from Flam to Bergen, it’s better to do a one-way trip as return trip is still quite time-consuming. I think the ferry has better scenes than the train from Myrdal to Bergen.

The trip was absolutely wonderful. Guide Gimndes - Dziky was very friendly, informed and he showed us many new things. We spend 11 hours with him.

Very comfortable boat. A long voyage but if you are in Norway you need to see the fjords. Classic Norwegian experience

The trip is really worth it, along the way you can see the king of the fjords and it is truly wonderful

Agnis was amazing. He was very accommodating and even took me to see two stave churches.
