Øygarden – Fedje
Experience the coastal region of Bergen!
The Bergen region has a fantastic coastline with thousands of islands and a buzzing cultural scene. The area of Øygarden and the island of Fedje – the village in the sea, is an exiting area
for active experiences. The fjord landscape opens up just a few minutes’ drive west of Bergen city centre. The ice retreated 10,000 years ago, leaving thousands of islands like pearls on a string. This is the land of contrast and you can explore it all on this fjord cruise.
From Bergen you can drive, take a bus or bicycle to Hellesøy, far north in Øygarden. The fjord cruise takes approx. 40 minutes from Hellesøy to Fedje. The fjord cruise departs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from June 16th to August 25th.
