The tour starts with a 1,5 hours’ drive to Åkrafjorden, home to Langefoss waterfall.
Langfoss waterfall drops down the steep mountainside with great power, looking like a bride’s wail from a distance. A nature’s wonder, a beauty to watch, and one of the highlights when visiting the west coast of Norway. On this fjord cruise on Åkrafjorden you will experience the Norwegian nature, and see one highlight after the other as the boat cruises quietly along the fjord. The contrasts found in the fjord are many. You will see waterfalls drop into the quiet fjord down the steep, rough mountains, as well as enjoy the beauty of the lush green fields also found along the shores of the fjord.
The waterfall and the fjord
The highlight of the boat trip is of course seeing the Langfoss waterfall roaring down towards you from 600 meters aboove and into the fjord. Feel light drops of the water from the waterfall on your skin, hear the roaring sound of the water running down the steep mountain next to you, wild and powerful, as the white, foamy water dances around you like clouds. After the fjord cruise, we stop at Eljarvik Farm where we will have lunch, and then we visit a lady known for her beautiful “rosemaling”, a traditional method of painting.
