Step aboard vintage ship MS Bruvik as it brings you on a cruise of Hjørundfjord. Dating back to 1949, this beloved motorship still features classic décor for a nostalgic onboard ambience. Comfortable lounges that serve refreshments and an outdoor deck have been modernised, perfect for taking in the dramatic scenery.  

The scenic sailing passes through majestic Hjørundfjord to the village of Sæbø. Local, knowledgeable guides will enhance your experience with fascinating insight into the history of the fjord and its communities.   

From Sæbø, we will make our way to Rekkedal Guesthouse. Here, you will be greeted and hosted by the 20th generation hosts of this 16th-century family farm.
