Beautiful four hour round trip from Bergen. Cross the mystical maelstroms on the sailing to Skjerjehamn harbour.
Get away from the busy city life, take in the delights of a magical half-day excursion to historical and idyllic Skjerjehamn. The old trading post has hundreds of years of coastal traditions to experience, and now a new sculpture walk, The Blue Garden, that explores the impact of modern aquaculture. In the self-guided tour you will learn how salmon is farmed in Norway today, and why it will be important to the world tomorrow.
Skjerjehamn is set on a beautiful petite island, right at the port of the Sognefjord. It is an excellent choice for anyone who appreciate nature, art and culture. Stop by the gallery with changing exhibitions, on your way to the old shop on the dock where homesmoked salmon, souvenirs and snacks are for sale. Take a walk in our garden, where the majestic monument for Kong Olav V reigns. Skjerjeham is also a popular destination for boaters, food lovers and for weekend breaks. Skjerjehamn is open all-year round. The Blue Garden opens May 2018
