Sognefjord the Compact Cruise 2003

Join us for a relaxing 2-day sightseeing cruise that will take you through some of the most scenic parts of the Fjords. We sail between idyllic skerries and small islands on the majestic Sognefjord, “King of the Fjords”.

New cable cars for the Bergen Floybanen Funicular

The Bergen Floybanen is the only cable funicular in Scandinavia, and was opened in 1918. It will take you to the top of the Floyen mountain to give you a spectacular view of the city of Bergen and its surroundings. A few days ago, a new set of carriages were put into operation, after a total upgrading of the entire service this autumn.

Welcome on board !

Fylkesbaatane runs express boat services between the county of Sogn og Fjordane and Bergen with four large catamarans, and local express boat services within Sogn og Fjordane with around ten smaller express boats,,,,

Oslo favoured by cruise ships

Oslo was Norway's most popular destination for foreign cruise ships in 2008, with 250,000 registered passengers. This is an increase by 26 per cent from 2007, says VisitOslo CEO Tor Sannerud.

Record number of cruise liners to Oslo

So far 165 cruise liners have announced that they will call at Oslo harbour this summer, a new record. Last summer 131 cruise liners with around 180,000 passengers stopped over in Oslo.

There will also be a new record at Flaam this year, while Bergen will receive the same number of cruise liners as last year.

154 liners will stop at Geiranger, down from 165 last summer.
