    Stop At: Bergenhus Fortress, Bergen Norway

    This is a short round-trip by car to the amazing Osterfjord area.

    Our professional driver-guide picks you up at your hotel in Bergen centre (or cruise ship port) and our tour starts. Departure is usually at 9:00am unless otherwise agreed. 

    Leaving Bergen we drive past some of the sights. The Medieval fortress of Bergenhus is one of them.

    Duration: 1 minute

    Stop At: Osterøy Bridge, Fv566, 5264 Bergen, Norway

    From Bergen, we will travel to the Osterfjord – a fjord that surrounds one on the largest continental islands in Europe – Osterøy island, 127 square miles (330 km2).

    Our first stop is at the viewpoint right after crossing the bridge over the fjord.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Dale of Norway Factory Outlet & Museum, Sandlivegen 2, 5722 Dalekvam, Norway

    Returning to mainland, we move on to Dale, where the famous sweater factory is located – “Dale of Norway”. We can visit the factory outlet and maybe pick up some woolen souvenirs there.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Skipshelleren, 5727 Vaksdal, Norway

    From Dale we take one of lesser-known roads going north: steep mountains, narrow fjords and secluded villages along the way.

    Our next stop is at the Stone Age settlement on the Bolstadfjord: a short walk on a moderately steep trail is required.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Hesjedalsfossen, Fv569 540, 5727 Stamnes, Norway

    Moving on we come to yet another narrow fjord – the Eidsfjord – and make a stop at the magical Hesjedalsfossen waterfall: one of the most iconic sights, and yet an offbeat attraction.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Mo, Mo, Modalen Municipality, Hordaland, Western Norway

    We continue our journey and reach Mo (pronounced “Moo”) – a cosy village between two waterfalls: Geitaskaret and Kvernhusfossen. Here we can have lunch at a small restaurant/café overlooking the Mofjord and Geitaskaret waterfall.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Kvernhusfossen, Fv569 71, 5729 Modalen, Norway

    Leaving Mo, we make a short stop at the Kvernhusfossen waterfall before returning to Bergen – an almost non-stop 1.5-hour drive. 

    In the winter, some of the waterfalls and fjords may be frozen.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Mostraumen, Modalen, Norway

    Our next and last stop on this tour is at the Mostraumen strait - the 600 meters long, very narrow channel connecting two fjords. During the tide there is a strong current here and, of course, an amazing view (regardless of the tide).

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Osterfjorden, Alver, Norway

    On our way back to Bergen we'll continue our ride along the Osterfjord - now to the west of Osterøy island.
    (Usually we do not stop here.)

    Duration: 1 minute

    Stop At: Nordhordlandsbrua, Bergen, Norway

    Before returning to Bergen we will cross the fjord on the second longest bridge in Norway - the Nordhordlandsbrua - part floating part suspension bridge.
