Description

The boat trip starts from Balestrand and goes to Fjærland. The Fjærlandsfjord is beautiful and majestic, surrounded by snowy mountain peaks. The fjord has a light green colour because of the meltwater from the glacier that pours out into the fjord.

The boat trip is a marvellous experience from the art village of Balestrand through the beautiful fjord landscape and almost to the glacier Jostedalsbreen. From the boat you have a wonderful view towards the glacier plateau of the Jostedalsbreen.

From the quay in Mundal, Fjærland, the glacier bus takes you to the foot of the glacier. We recommend a longer stay in Fjærland so you can really enjoy the nature and can visit the Norwegian Booktown. Return to Balestrand by boat, in the afternoon or the day after.

There is not possible to pre-book tickets. This will be ready in April/May.
