Hjørundfjord – the unexpected

Explore our beautiful region and the magnificent Hjørundfjord onboard our comfortable speed-yacht! Travel through nature in a dramatic, rugged and historically rich fjord landscape. This all-season round trip combines fjord sightseeing with two onshore events; one where you are invited to visit a small vineyard located in the village Viddal and one lunchstop at Trandal, the tiny village without road access.

Haula Vineyard, Viddal village in Hjørundfjord

VIDDAL

The farmer, Nina, pours some bubbles in the field

When you arrive at the small village Viddal, you will be welcomed by the woman who lives at, and works the vineyard. After a short walk, a tour of the vineyard starts and you will learn a bit about the magic and willpower needed to grow grapes and produce wine this close to the Arctic circle! The vineyard has been in the owners family for over 400 years and the first goal is to melt the past and the future together to create a sustainable agricultural future for the coming generations.

TRANDAL

After boarding the boat again, we are bound for the farm Christian Gaard located in the village Trandal. On our way there we pass Øye and Urke, small seaside villages in the Nordangsfjord. At Trandal / Christian Gaard we make a stop for about an hour, for refreshments and lunch and a ride in their famous swing, which is highly recommended.
