Hire the veteran boat MK Erkna for a fjord tour. The boat takes 12 passengers and can pick up your group at Bryggen or wherever is suitable for you.
MK Erkna was built in 1907 and has a long and interesting history. The boat is 5 years older than the Titanic - and still floating!
Erkna is one of the three so-called "Shetland buses" left in Norway after the war. Erkna made a journey across the North Sea with 60 refugees a stormy night in October 1942. Now you can hire Erkna for a fjord cruise and get a special historic setting for your event.
If you have a special route in mind for your trip, we are happy to take you there. If you don't, we have several routes to suggest.
Here is one suggestion for a day trip from Bergen:
We depart from the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bryggen in Bergen and head to Sandviken and Gamle Bergen (Old Bergen) and continue in the Bergensfjord to Alverstraumen. Here we explore the small beautiful place Småholmen before the trip continues between narrow islets and reefs. This area is particulary beautiful. The trip continues into Damsgårdsundet and we return and embark at Bryggen.

Atle himself has a long career at sea as captain overeas, deadliest catch crab fishing, tuna fishing in Iran and India and much more.
