What people are saying about Vestland County

It was a wonderful experience. The wheather forecast was terrible and we were really afraid of the freezing temperatures. It turned out to be a very cold day but at least it stayed dry!!!! The different views were amazing. The guide was incredible and made the whole experience unforgettable. Arne is a very charming person

Despite the rain one of the highlights of our holiday! It's fantastic how close you get to different waterfalls and of course the view, even when it rains, is phenomenal. We even saw porpoises up close. Good and clear explanation about the environment from the friendly captain. Highly recommended!

Really fun boat ride - our teenagers enjoyed it as well! Beautiful scenery, interesting information provided. Recommend this one!

Absolutely brilliant excursion! Not cheap, but definitely worth it.
