Vik: tourist information

The district of Vik is situated on the southern side of Sognefjorden, the longest fjord in the world. Many roadslead to Vik, classified road 13 over Vikafjellet from Bergen and Oslo. The ferry connection Vangsnes – Hella– Dragsvik takes you over Sognefjorden, and the express boat to and from Bergen, twice a day during the summer.

Vik district has a varied economic life, which consists of industry, agriculture and tourism. The district is made up of 5 regions: Arnafjord, Vik (the central area), Vangsnes, Feios and Fresvik – mentioned from west to east along the fjord. Today, all these places have public services such as a school, nursery school, library and community hall. You also find a general store in every region. Today, the district also has 5 churches in active use.

Vik is rich in old cultural monuments, and on a walk between these two churches can visitors see Moahaugane – a distinctive collection of burial mounds which in the main date back to 200 – 400 AD. We can also show you the protected area, Vikoyri – an intact shore dweller site with 60 houses.

Vik produces about 900 GWH electricity. In the wake of power development has industry evolved with production of road safety equipment, steel, aluminium panels for different kinds of constructions, road signposts, facade covering, mechanical industry, food industry and in Fresvik, production of refrigerated storage. In addition to this, we also have Vik prison, the only prison in Sogn og Fjordane.
