Private Coastal Safari, incl Bocuse d'Or lunch at Bekkjarvik Guesthouse

Explore the coastline outside Bergen and visit the outport of Bekkjarvik on this private tour with a luxury boat, the Grand Turismo of the seas, Axopar 37XC. The beautiful fjords and the vast Atlantic ocean meet in the coastal landscape west of Bergen. This area is made up of a string of thousands of large and small islands, and many of them are connected to the mainland by bridges. Out here at the ocean’s edge, you can enjoy the vast sky and panoramic views. The string of islands forms a barrier between the sea and fjords. The sea lashed the coast on the western side, while the waters are often calmer on the sheltered side. Bekkjarvik, situated in the beautiful islands of Austevoll south of Bergen, is an old fishing village with old buildings and quays. The village is home to the venerable Bekkjarvik Guesthouse, an old inn built in the 17th century, where they have been welcoming guests for more than 300 years. In Bekkjarvik we have lunch at the famous restaurant at the guesthouse.

It was the Danish King Christian IV who decided that inns were to be built at intervals of a whole or half-day’s sailing along the shipping fairway. Through the ages, trapping and fishing have been the livelihoods of the people in Austevoll. In Bekkjarvik salted herring, exported lobster, made thousands of barrels and hangers for closing nets. Here was boathouse, bakery and distillery. Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri has always been a natural focal point in this lush bustle. Bekkjarvik and guest house bloom into the new era.
