Norheimsund RIB Seafari takes you right into some of Norway's most stunning sceneries. Onboard our comfortable, open RIB you get a close feeling of this world famous fjord area with waterfalls which was created by erosion and melting ice thousands of years ago.

After crossing the majestic Hardangerfjord our vessel will bring you up the narrow fjord of Fyksesund to Botnen, a settlement with rugged beauty that will leave you breathless. This community is remote even by Norwegian standards, it's rural with no crowds – no ques - no fuzz. Just pure silence and picturesque scenery. Bring your camera to capture your memories of this panoramic adventure. On board our fast running, open RIB boat you will pass waterside villages and steep mountains raising 3000 feet into the air. This is where glacial erosion have given way to sculpted towering mountainsides with dramatic waterfalls. This is "alpine cruising" that excites. Cruising the deep fjord along towering mountains is an unforgetable experience and a panoramic adventure which provides you with everlasting memories. Scenic route: Norheimsund-Aksnesholmane-Herand-Fyksesund-Botnagrend-Kvamsøy-Norheimsund. Departure from Norheimsund Marina downtown Norheimsund. The trip is suitable for most people.
