Latest winter tour to Stegastein viewpoint in Aurland
Take a look at our latest fjord tour experiences to Nærøyfjorden. Despite cold weather, our guest's found the view and surroundings outstanding!
Over the past winter months we have had some amazing tours with the best guests! First off, we picked up our guests in Bergen and began our drive to the city of Voss. Voss is well known for their extreme sports opportunities, and people from all over the world travel to Voss for extreme experiences. In this tour, we just stopped on the way for our customers to get a quick sight of the city. Moving on, we arrive at our first famous waterfall Tvindefossen. This waterfall is 110 m long, and a must see for anyone who is traveling from Voss to Aurland.
Our next stop is an enchanting place called Gudvangen in the county of Aurland. Gudvangen is close to Nærøyfjorden which is on UNESCO's world heritage list. We stop right by the start of Nærøyfjorden, where our guests enjoy a tour with an electric fjord cruise through Nærøyfjorden. The fjord's exceptional natural beauty is derived from their narrow and steep-sided crystalline rock walls, and these walls rise up to 1.400 m from the Norwegian sea and extend 500 m below sea level. Nærøyfjorden is the world's narrowest fjord, which gives you a close up at the spectacular surroundings. You will experience that the sheer walls of the fjords have numerous waterfalls, rugged mountains and glaciers.
When our guests arrive in the city of Flåm, we stand ready to pick them up, and can't wait to drive further and show them Stegastein viewpoint. When you arrive at Stegastein viewpoint, you will get a panorama view 650 meters over the Aurlandsfjord. The view is breathtaking, and you will have to look for your whole life to find a better view. Enjoy taking wonderful pictures of the scene, as seen on our main picture for this post. After Stegastein, we start our trip home in our high class minibusses, where you can relax and take in all expressions from the tour.

Lovely fjord cruise with great views
"My girlfriend and I booked this trip as we had never been to Norway before. We had an amazing experience - the electric boat was almost silent and felt like you were gliding through the fjord. Even though it was raining we still got to see the incredible views, even at the viewpoint. Geir, our tour guide, was very accomodating and gave us information about the sites along the way (in good English). Overall, he made our experience better."
Worth every penny
This tour was the highlight of our 4 days vacation to Bergen. The guide was super nice and the tour was amazing. Especially the fjord tour, that was really cool. We also had enough time to buy some souvenirs and lunch. I would 100% recommend this tour!!!
"Excellent tour! The guide was kind and made many stops for snacks and the restroom. Saw some incredible sights! Looking at the itinerary, it seems to be very similar to “Norway in a nutshell” but with less stress. He also takes you to an INCREDIBLE viewpoint."
Fantastic, I'd do it again!
"This is the tour me and my partner saw advertised when we first looked at visiting Bergen. It did not disappoint! Our driver (Willy) was knowledgeable, and good humored, great for a full day tour of at least 10 hours. The first major stop at the waterfalls of Tvindefossen were beautiful, surrounded by snow and a true winter wonderland. After we arrived in Gudvangen which is surrounded by dramatic towering snow capped mountains, your jaw is on the floor all the way through. The fjord cruise from Gudvangen to Flam is one of the most spectacular things I have seen and we ended at Stegastein Viewpoint, looking down into the fjord as clouds of snow rolled in just before sunset. The highlight of our holiday!! We will be doing this tour again in Springtime!"
Lovely visit to Flåm and Stegastein
"We had a wonderful experience taking the ferry ride from gudvangen to flam and to the stegastein viewpoint. Our guide was Geir. He did a great job taking us around some waterfalls and lake on the way to gudvangen. Then we took the ferry to flam and met him there to ride us to the stegastein viewpoint. The view is super beautiful and mesmerising from there and worth visiting. We had a a wonderful experience. Thank you."
