Zip through the typically calm, glassy waters of Nordfjord in a high-speed boat, enjoying an exhilarating ride and some of the most majestic views in this part of Norway.
After a short walk along the pier, you will suit up in waterproof gear and board an RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) that is ideal for cruising Nordfjord. The vessel is designed to zip through the water at a high speed yet provide a remarkably smooth ride.
As soon as the engine fires up, you will feel the power of the RIB as you head into the fjord, the sixth longest in Norway. You can expect an exhilarating, adrenaline-charged experience.
Being so speedy, the vessel can cover a wide area quickly, so you will see a surprising variety of scenery in just a short time. Natural highlights will include snow-capped mountains and dense forests blanketing the lower regions right to the water’s edge.
If the land seems surprisingly green, it is because the soil is glacially formed moraine and extraordinarily fertile. Many of the oldest farms in Norway are in this area, some dating back more than 2,000 years.
While zipping along the surface of Nordfjord, you will also enjoy a unique perspective of your cruise ship and the tiny village of Olden, which nestles along the mouth of the Oldeelva River. After approximately 30 minutes on the water, the RIB will return to the pier, leaving you with lasting memories of this one-of-a-kind experience.
