Our private cruise to Modalen is an exclusive alternative to the fast ferries, if you want a private experience to the best fjords around Bergen. We depart from Bergen, watching the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bryggen from the seaside with the beautiful backdrop of the seven mountains surrounding the city, including Mt Fløyen and Mount Ulriken. We slowly cruise up the fjords from Bergen, where the scenery changes gradually from when we leave the second largest city in Norway, passing the suburbs Sandviken and Eidsvåg, to when we arrive at the narrow remote fjords and villages with beautiful waterfalls. The atmosphere shifts from busy city life, to a quiet and pristine landscape and surroundings. Up in the end of the fjord we call upon a waterfall directly down to the fjord and boat, where you can have a waterfall-shower, or taste the clean mountain water. We dock in the village of Mo for a break, where you can have lunch at the small local cafè- and explore the village on your own.

Consider spending a day climbing the world’s longest wooden staircase. With its 4444 steps, Flørli is known to be one of the scariest stairs in the world. The climb is long and strenuous, but provides great lookout points where you can stop to catch your breath while enjoying the vista over the Lysefjord down below. This is a two-part hike that does not take you through the same scenery more than once. The descent follows the hundred-year old marked trail that was once used by the “Rallarer”. Rallarer were often underprivileged men that were employed in the 1800s Norway to help build infrastructure. They are remembered to have carried up to 80 kg loads on their backs, and are the ones that built the stairs along with the Flørli Hydroelectric Power Station at their base. The dam at Ternevatnet, which the return trail passes, also stands as a reminder of their mastery.
