Beautiful roundtrip starting with the train from Voss. Highlights are biking from Myrdal to Flåm, fjord safari on the Nærøyfjord to Gudvangen,.and kayak on the Aurlandsfjord.
This is a very popular round trip that lasts about 10 hours and takes you through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Norway. The tour includes the Bergen Railway, a bike ride down the Flåm valley, kayaking on the Aurlandsfjord with a guide, and a fjord safari with a local guide from Flåm to Gudvangen.
The Standard Extra Fjord Tour starts at the railway station in Voss with the train to Myrdal station. You leave the train at Myrdal and pick up your bike and helmet at Rallaren cafe on the train station. After a short briefing, you are ready to cycle down to Flåm. It is an easy route to cycle, mostly either downhill or flat. There is a lower age limit of 12 years for the cycling trip. If you have luggage with you, it will be taken down by car.
You can also stop and take photos en route. Once down in Flåm, you have about 30 minutes to explore on your own. Flåm is a charming small village surrounded by steep mountainsides, cascading waterfalls and narrow valleys. It is lovely just to stroll around, but you can also visit the Flåm Railway Museum. It is also a nice place to catch a bite to eat before going kayaking on the fjord.
At 11.50 you rendezvous at the quay get dressed, equipped and register for the fjord safari. There are maximum 12 passengers and a guide in each RIB boat, so it almost feels like you are on a private tour. The boat stops at several places en route and the guide tells interesting stories about the local history of the fjords. You will also have a good chance of seeing some marine wildlife and birds in their natural element, for example seals, harbour porpoises and eagles. On this safari, the boat heads out the Aurlandfjord and up the Nærøyfjord.
At 13.25, you meet up with the guide at the boathouse where the kayaks are kept. There, you will be given information and you team up two and two in each kayak. You will be issued all the equipment you need, and you do not need much prior kayaking experience. Children can also participate. You now have about three hours to enjoy kayaking on the Aurlandsfjord. The guide will tell you some local history and you can enjoy the silence out on the fjord, with steep mountainsides rising straight up from the water.
The Nærøyfjord is one of the narrowest fjords in Europe. In 2005, the Nærøyfjord was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The safari takes around 1 hour and 20 minutes and ends in Gudvangen. During a break in the paddling we will serve bbq-food and water.
In Gudvangen, your guide is waiting for you with a minibus to take you to Voss. You arrive in Voss at about 18.30.
