About
We take you from Hotel Ullensvang to the long and narrow pristine fjord Fyksesund, and back to Ullensvang. Cruising time to Fyksesund is about 1 hour at full speed, but we prefer to go slow to enjoy the nice nature, fjord and view. We have no rush, we want to give you the best possible experience. Nice nature, beautiful fjords, high mountains. In the pristine Fyksesund fjord, you will explore the narrow and undiscovered fjord with only untouched nature, waterfalls and silence. No cruise-ships, and not many people. We enjoy the waterfalls directly down to the boat, where you can have a shower if you want, or taste the fresh mountain water. Enjoy the silence, or go for a swim in the fjord. Always snacks and refreshments included in the cruise, or enjoy the food you bring along on our panoramic-view Flybridge. Lunch onboard if ordered, or we can stop at a restaurant along the route. When finished, we slowly cruise back to the hotel. We guarantee a nice day on the fjord :)

We arrived in Eidfjord by car from Oslo around 3 PM, and our travel agent had booked this boat for a fjord cruise to Ullensvang. It was planned to do a detour via Fyksesund, which should be a good spot.

Boat was ready in Eidsfjord when we arrived, and after a short stroll in the streets with some lovely icecream from a small shop, we went onboars the boat. We had no rush at all, and agreed with the captain to take it easy most of the time, slow cruising to enjoy the fjord.

After a while we arrived Fyksesund fjord, and as the rumors said- it was a lovely place. We cruised in the fjord towards several small waterfalls, and have never seen something like this. Captain manouvered the boat into the waterfall, and my wife got on the foredeck to have a shower under it, even though it was a little cold it was an amazing experience.

We opened a bottle of wine and njoyed the rest of the cruise, heading for our hotel at Lofthus. We must say that this cruise made the day for us, and the fjords live up to its rumor, LOVELY!!

This was a cruise ordered at sime time as the hotel, as we wanted to really explore the Hardangerfjord. This boat company reccomended Fyksesund as the best part of the Hardangerfjord.

The boat picked us up at the hotel quay around 10 AM, and we cruised slowly out the fjord towards Fyksesund. Boat was in excellent shape, and we also had some snacks and refreshments served. We enjoyed most of the trip from the top deck (Flybridge), with nice biew all the way. We wanted to go slow, as we had enough time, and that was OK for the captain.

Fyksesund was amazing, with mountains on both sides of the narrow fjord. Some small waterfalls on the way in, and a larger one in the end of the fjord. We stayed in there for about half an hour, with engines shut of, just to enjoy the silence and the sounds from the nature (waterfalls and birds). We call this "charging our batteries", this was really calm, fantastic atmosphere this day.

August, 2019. We stayed at Hotel Ullensvang, and had pre-booked a 4 hour cruise to Fyksesund.

Start after breakfast, and boat was located just outside the hotel (6 meters from the pool). We were guided onboard, and told that the flybridge on top would give the best experience. Captain asked if we had any rush and wanted to be back after 4 hours, or if we had the day available. No rush, so we cruised slow all the way. We were served coffee, tea, snacks, whatever needed, and my husband had some beer while I had some wine (included!!) The view along the fjord was stunning, and we passed several small villages on the way. After a while we reached the Fyksesund fjord, and it was getting more narrow between the mountains. We passed under a great bridge, and 10 minutes later we reached the first waterfall. Not so very big, but still enough for us. Captain turned the boat bow under the waterfall, and we could have a shower or taste the fresh water. We passed several waterfalls later, and went all the way in to the end of the Fyksesund. We stopped the boat engines, and it was so quite in there, only us and nothing else. Could hear the birds sing, and the waterfalls.... Lovely.

We were back at the hotel 6 hours later, and actually had a 6 hour cruise for the price of 4 hours. Great service!!
