DAY 3 – Cruise to Mostraumen
Deep fjords, sheer mountains, mighty waterfalls and powerful currents! This spectacular tour from Bergen takes you up the 27-kilometer long Osterfjorden in Hordaland province.
Innermost in the fjord is Modalen, the second smallest municipality in Norway with about 380 residents. Underway, the fjord narrows between the steep mountains as you are brought safely through the strong currents of the
shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait. You’ll also see waterfalls that can give your face a really refreshing shower at times of peak water flow!
