Step aboard vintage ship MS Bruvik for a cruise of Hjørundfjord. This beloved motor ship dates back to 1949 and still features classic décor and a nostalgic onboard ambience. Its comfortable lounges serve refreshments and its renovated outdoor deck is perfect for taking in the dramatic scenery.

The scenic journey passes through majestic Hjørundfjord to the village of Sæbø. Knowledgeable local 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, the host who will greet you belongs to the 20th generation of the family running this 16th-century farm. Explore the farmyard and its 500-year-old history before indulging in a memorable meal of local and sustainable products, including carefully paired wine. With our bellies full, we’ll return to Ålesund aboard MS Bruvik, admiring our stunning surroundings along the way.
