Great way to view the fjords , the views are amazing , the boat trip was comfortable and enjoyable with plenty of refreshments on the boat although I have paid to return by boat when I got to flam I decided to return by the famous flam railway which is a must The views on the train are breathtaking if somewhat eerie in places In my opinion I would recommend doing this trip one way to flam and catching the train back for a full on experience

A very professional operation with Rodne on a very comfortable vessel. The whole team were delightful and the Captain made a special effort to come round and talk to the passengers on the way back to the harbour. An unforgettable experience

This little trip on the Catamaran is well worth it. Even though the weather was grim in parts it is so magical. We loved it and the Cat is very comfortable inside and plenty of space to get outside too.

Beautiful experience - snacks and coffee on board were nice too

Good fun, relaxing sail, interesting conversation.
