Wake up in a new fjord village every morning
ONBOARD IN MS SLOGEN
Imagine waking up every morning in a new place along the fjord. On your trip with MS Slogen you will! Enjoy breakfast and prepare your packed lunch with the fragrance of salty sea and a surrounding wild nature before starting each day’s tour experience.
At the bow in front you will find our exclusive and quite special bar – an ideal spot for enjoying a refreshing drink after your day of adventures. On deck you will find a large seating space, accompanied with a beautiful, recreational view. We can also serve you fresh shrimps or arrange a barbecue on board, grill your catch of fish from the fjord in the barn Grindaløa at Sæbø – or cater a three-course dinner at one of the local establishments. You can indulge yourself with a bath in the bath tub on deck, filled with heated, clean water from Hjørundfjorden. The breathtaking view of fjords and mountains is stunning – in biting winter cold as well as in summer. Enjoy an escape from the everyday life. Listen to the sound of rolling waves and lose yourself in the vision of wild nature and a feeling of tranquillity.
From the day we started to transport goods and people to different fjord locations, the people of Sunnmøre have chosen the sea route. The wanderlust has been a part of our lives from the very beginning and the sea has provided several extreme adventures in Norwegian history.
Fjord Exploring is located in the panoramic Hjørundfjorden. This is where we facilitate both spectacular and peaceful trips in dramatic surroundings. The team behind the company knows the area inside out and takes you to places you never knew existed – by the fjord and in the mountains.
Experiences are tailor-made to fit each single tour group, giving you a real impression of life within and around the fjord. Whether your dream is an easy hiking trip or to climb challenging mountain peaks, you are invited to experience Norwegian maritime history and enjoy majestic nature on board the MS Slogen.

This fjord ploughs 35 kilometres through the mighty Sunnmøre alps. Places like Sæbø, Urke, Trandal, Viddal, Bjørke and Øye lie scattered here – accommodating mountaineers for several hundred years.
The mountains in this area stretch vertically from the sea level to the sky not only sutable for those wanting to klimb the tops, but also for easier trips by foot, bicycling, paddeling or fishing. The fjord has also local foodtraditions, culture and historie.
From Sæbø, the largest of the villages among the fjord, you can reach summits like Grøtdalstind, Dalegubben and Skårasalen. The trip to Skårasalen can also be done as a transitional tour to reach the charming village Skår – the smallest of the villages around the fjord with only two people living there.
Gunnarråsa, Olavshola and Sæbønestua is great alternatives from Sæbø for those who dont want to go to the highest mountains but still want to enjoy the great view of Hjørundfjorden from above.
Although Hjørundfjorden is mainly famous for the surrounding spectacular mountain peaks, it is ideal not only for height-seekers. The fjord is also an excellent starting point for easy walks, bike rides, paddling or fishing. Gunnarråsa, the cave Olavshola and Sæbønestua are excellent hiking alternatives with fantastic views if climbing peaks is not your cup of tea. A visit at the charming attraction Christian Gaard will give you an unforgettable experience of Norwegian rural culture. Remember to try Norway’s most famous swing while you are there!
At the innermost part of Hjørudfjord is Bjørke, where you can find the old farm, Bakketunet, which has a 400 years old history.
Bjørke is a nice startingpoint for summits like Kårdalstindane which gives a spectacular view of Hjørundfjorden which you will never forget.
On our way to Bjørke, we will pass the charming small village Finnes, whish is located on the edge of the fjord. There has been living people in Finnes since year 6oo. Come join us, and let us show you around.
