Arriving with kayak at Odnes we set up a camp and indulge ourselves with lunch, stretching our legs and share the serene surroundings with refreshing drinks. We continue hiking along the parts of the old Royal post route, which was used in winter time from the mid-1600s to transport the mail to Styvi when there was unsafe ice on the fjord. From there the farmers rowed the mail to Lærdalsøyri. In 1858 the steamboats took over the post route. Today the road is an easy walk of approx. 5 km one way from Styvi to Bleiklindi.

Fjord Cruise in silence
The two vessels Future and Legacy of The Fjords represent a brand-new standard in design and technology. They have been designed to maximise the tourist experience during any kind of weather, with large windows and walkways inspired by the winding trails of steep mountain terrain. Passengers are encouraged to go out on the top deck and enjoy a very different experience compared to traditional passenger vessels. Inside you will find Nordic inspired interior design offering a high level of comfort.
These are environmentally friendly vessels, both fully-electric sailing along the most exposed and spectacular parts of the Nærøyfjord, running on battery power only and keeping to a speed of less than 10 knots.

If you are after strenuous exercise, please be aware that our regular tours are not meant to be this, you will be asked to adjust your speed to the other clients and the guides pace.

What is the weather like in Flåm?
Please be aware that Flåm and Aurland are amongst the driest areas on the west coast of Norway and cannot be compared with Bergen as regards amount of rainfall. However, an old Norwegian proverb says “there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”.
In Flåm and Aurland we recommend staying at one of our comfortable accommodations: The historical Fretheim Hotel in Flåm or our new 'boutique style' Hotel Aurlandsfjord in Aurland. If you choose to stay in Aurland you can embark/disembark the fjordcruise from there, only 5 min walk from Hotel Aurlandsfjord.
Notice! The trip can be cancelled due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances or if there is not enough participants.
