The Sognefjord is a 100 nautical miles long. The nature is magnificent where the fjord makes its way in to the great glacier Jostedalsbreen and the high mountains in Jotunheimen. Balestrand lies midway between these locations and is therefore a good starting point for those who would like to experience the fjord, mountains and the glacier.
Suggestion for tree days in Balestrand:
Day 1. - a visit in Sognefjord aquarium with fishing - and boat activities. In the afternoon a tour of Balestrands cultural sights, and a visit to the many art exhibitions in the center. You can also take a walk in the nature trail that lies just 15 minutes up from the town center.
Day 2. - a roadtrip to Jostedalsbreen to visit the glacier center, where it is possible to take a walk on the Nigards glacier.
Day 3. - a hike to the mountain Tjuatoten with a shortcut to the Enamel workshop in Dragsvik.
