      Fjord Rigid-Inflatable Boat (RIB) Tour

      Skjolden, Norway
      From (USD) $70 Per Person (Based on 6)
      • High-performance boat: Put on a warm floating suit with hood, life jacket, and wind goggles (optional), then ride aboard a lightweight but high-performance and high-capacity rigid inflatable boat.
      • Skjolden Brygge: You'll start here and head along the north shore of the Lustrafjord. From the fjord, you'll have fine views of the farms and villages where people have lived and worked for centuries.
      • Feigumfossen: Be wowed by this incredible waterfall on the southern side of the Lustrafjord. It's a whopping 715 feet, one of the highest in Scandinavia.
      • Safthuset: See where Lerum, Norway's leading producer of jams and juices, got its start. The restored juice factory and old village store now operates as a museum.
      • Harastolen: View this abandoned site that was once an active ward for tuberculosis before becoming a psychiatric facility, then an asylum center for refugees.
      About this Skjolden tour

      This thrilling RIB tour takes you to a variety of different sites around the fjord. If the conditions are right, you might be able to see curious porpoises and fjord seals swimming near the boat. This one-of-a-kind experience is sure to give you a different perspective on the region. We'll make short stops at a few different local attractions so you'll have many opportunities to take magnificent photos while you absorb local history.

      One of the beautiful waterfalls you'll see is Feigumfossen. This stunning example of nature stands is 715 feet tall, making it the second-highest singular and unregulated freefall in Norway. The sheer magnitude of this waterfall is simply breathtaking.

      On your pit stop to Safthuset, the restored Lerum juice factory and old village store that's now a quaint museum, see how Norway's leading jam and juice producing company got its start over 100 years ago.

      From the boat, you'll have a view of Harastolen. Now abandoned, this building opened in 1902 and was originally used as a treatment facility for tuberculosis. After World War II, streptomycin was discovered (the antibiotic that treated tuberculosis), so the site changed function and was used as a psychiatric hospital. In early 1991, Harastolen shut down. Just a few years later, it became a reception center for refugees from the former Yugoslavia. Once that closed, Harastolen became abandoned once again, though if the walls could talk, there would be many tales to tell.

      A berry good accident

      Kari and Nils Lerum started their juice company in 1907 by accident. They had a small shop where they received berries from farmers. They would send the berries on to Bergen by boat. One day, two containers of raspberries sat out on the quay and turned into juice. This gave Kari and Nils the great idea to expand their business and the rest, as they say, is juice history. Still a family business, Lerum is owned by fourth generation family members.
