The adventure starts in Skjolden and continues by RIB boat out the Lustrafjord. Coming up close to waterfalls, we will also have fine views of the fjord farms where the people of the Lustrafjord lived and worked for centuries. If you are lucky, curious porpoises and fjord seals could show up near the RIB making it an even more enjoyable experience.
After approx. 40 minutes on the fjord, we go ashore in the small town Urnes and start walking towards Urnes Stave Chruch on an uphill gravel road. The RIB-guide follows you all the way up to the stave church, where you meet a guide from the church. You will learn more about this amazing church, its unique architecture, and how it is Norway’s oldest stave church – built around 1130. On our way back, we stop at different sites, like the 218-metre-tall Feigumfossen waterfall and the village of Sørheim.
This adventure gives you an exciting combination of nature and culture, as well as a pleasant visit in the romantic village of Urnes!
