Express boat from Bergen

During the summer, it is possible to take the express boat from Bergen to Nordeide and Vik.



Boat from Nordeide to Ortnevik and Vik

There is a scheduled boat service between Nordeide and Vik that stops in Ortnevik and several of the roadless hamlets on the south side of Sognefjorden. Visitors can disembark at the isolated hamlets on the south side of Sognefjorden. Seeing as this boat does not operate every day, it is a good idea to plan a trip that runs over several days.
