The Fjord Cruise lasts until 22.00 and includes a light seafood meal. There will be an alternative option for those of you who have pre-registered specific dietary needs.

It is possible to buy a return ticket, if you would like to spend more time on Mount Fløien on your own instead of joining the rest of the group on the walk back to the city centre.
