Mostraumen and Osterfjord Cruise - Round tour from Bergen

5 reviews
Join our round-trip cruise from Bergen in spectacular fjord scenery. This fantastic tour takes you up the 27-kilometer long Osterfjord. Underway, the fjord narrows between steep mountains as we bring you safely through the powerful currents of the shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait. We sail our bow right up to a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water for you to sample before turning back and returning to Bergen through the magnificent landscape. Our modern, comfortable boats have sundecks and kiosks offering refreshments, including beer and wine. <br><br>Departure from Zacharias Bryggen / Fish market in Bergen

This is definitely worth the time it takes to get to Salhus from Bergen! The museum is fascinating, and the tour docent was kind enough to conduct the tour bilingually as my Norwegian isn’t the strongest. There are many beautiful items in the gift shop - very special yarn (the yarn is produced nearby in Hillesvåg and then plied on the museum machines!) gorgeous pattern books, lovely handknit and nålebinded items, as well as interesting notions and accessories. The cafe has nice waffles with jam as well to fortify you before you head out to catch your bus back into Bergen! Do make the time to go here even if knitting isn’t really your thing, because just learning the history of the area and how it all centered around the factory that the museum used to be is fascinating.

We really recommend this museum. It is really worth to take a trip from Bergen. The ladies were so kind to guide us for a last minute trip. The guide showed us though the whole production process and started some of the machines. The whole tour lasted for around 30min. There is a cafeteria at the reception. Thank you!

I had heard a lot about this museum through the Bergen strikkefestival Instagram, and I was not disappointed. After the two buses out of town to get there we arrived a bit late for the tour but they let us in and we caught up with it. The tour was in Norwegian (which I understand) and the machines were great to see! My partner who is not a knitter, found the industrial history of the place super interesting. I feel that it does help a little to have some knowledge about how yarn is made before coming to the museum and It may be an idea to show how the process was done by hand before these machines, as that was one of my biggest take aways. I noticed some other reviews commenting on the price of the yarn in the shop. I felt that it was actually very reasonable for small batch, non-masproduced yarns. I do wish that they sold bigger skeins or more cones! We missed the bus on the way back, so got to enjoy the cafe for an hour. There are many books to look at, as well as cakes and drinks. I enquired about vegan snack options and was told they had vegan berry ice cream. All in all a great visit and I look forward to coming back during the strikkefestival!

Beautifully preserved museum with interesting video about the history of the place followed by a fascinating tour of the machines (the tour was in English but we could ask questions and these were answered in either Norwegian or English). Gorgeous shop with some lovely but very expensive wool, knitted garments and books. Fabulous cafe with lovely looking food and drinks (we didn't have time to stop but I saw a few families and a couple of people sitting and knitting, it was very relaxed, light and airy). I'd really recommend this - quite a quirky different place to visit.

This museum was REALLY interesting with the guided tour - the old machines turned on made even my boyfriend excited. It is located approx. 20 mins from central Bergen by car. The tour took approx. 1 hour and there was a film (30 mins) before the tour about the old workers of the industry. The tour guide and staff were really nice and helpful. Highly recommended!
