CULINARY SAFARI OF THE SCENIC FJORD-COAST


Join us for an eventful day cruise which takes you out into Bergen’s beautiful archipelago.

Enjoy a tour packed with sights and attractions:

  • Great day cruise along the fjord coast – in a comfortable catamaran
  • Lunch at Ørjan Johannesen’s (winner of Bocuse d’Or in 2015) family-owned restaurant at Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri
  • Coffee stop, homemade chocolate, and storytelling at the old trade post E. H. Vaage landhandleri og bageri at Uggedalseidet in Tysnes  


Start from Solstrand Hotel & Bad/Os:

The tour starts at Solstrand Hotel & Bad - by the hotel's dock, where you board the catamaran which will take you out on a great day trip in the scenic archipelago along the fjord coast. Departure from the quay is at 10.50am.

The modern boats have sun decks and a comfortable lounge. The kiosk on board offers snacks and refreshments, as well as beer and wine. Along the way, you’ll learn about places and stories connected to the places we visit or pass by. Vikings, war history, and more modern times – and some information about the two world champions we’ll visit.

To Bekkjarvik in Austevoll – for lunch:

We sail through the western archipelago – towards the skerries of Austevoll, facing the North Sea – with a total of 667 rugged islands and islets.

Then we come alongside the quay in picturesque Bekkjarvik, warmly received at Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri for a lovely two-course lunch.

The proximity to the ocean and the local cuisine characterizes the menu, spiced up with inspiration from the guest house’s very own world champion Ørjan Johannessen. He won the gold medal in the World Food Championships, Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, France, in 2015, and was the fifth Norwegian to win the gold medal, and so he put tiny Bekkjarvik on the map.

The guest house was established on the king’s order, when King Christian Quart in the 1600s decided that an inn should be built for every half or whole day journey in the shipping lane. Lodgers have been received here for more than three hundred years. Today, most buildings have been restored with new usage.

You can pop by Gallery Bekkjarvik after lunch and go for a stroll in the lavish park or along the promenade by the sea. Enjoy the view from the idyllic and snug boat harbour. Perhaps in combination with a dip on the sandy beach right around the corner?

 

From Bekkjarvik to Tysnes – for a coffee break

The cruise from Bekkjarvik to Tysnes takes you out into the fjord, in between islets and skerries, and also through the quaint strait by Reksteren.

This was a highly active area during the occupation of Norway from 1940-45, and along the coast you’ll spot cannons and bunkers. Two German forts were built at Reksteren, and one of them is quite large and well preserved.

Afterwards we’ll arrive at the old trade post from 1902 at Tysnesøya, namely E.H Vaage Landhandleri og Bageri, offering freshly ground-coffee and homemade chocolates.

The place is run by the historical hotel Haaheim Gaard. The trade post has been restored and brought back to its original form, transporting you to a bygone time.

You get to experience the atmosphere of the historical trade post and the smell of chocolate from the chocolate factory. In the old masonry oven-bakery you’ll learn how such bakeries were run around the turn of the nineteenth century, and you can buy local food, chocolate and applied arts in the old shop. Haaheim Sjokolade is located here, where they produce confectionaries filled with local produce.

After a nice visit to Tysnes, we head back to sea as the tour is coming to an end. We arrive at Solstrand Hotel & Bad approx. 15:20 – in high spirits after an eventful day filled with new impressions.

Then you set forth on your own.

 

We recommend that you extend your stay in Bergen and fill the memory book with more great adventures. Stay at the same hotel for several days, or choose among other charming and unique historical hotels in the Bergen area;

The package includes:

  • 1 night at Solstrand Hotel & Bad
  • 3-course dinner both days in the hotel restaurant
