From Balestrand, we go west on the Sognefjord towards Høyanger. On the way we pass the small villages along the fjord with culture and industry. Some of them are even roadless

When we arrive Høyanger, a green-industy village, we stop and take on board more passangers. From here we cross the deepest part of the fjord before arriving in Ortnevik. This is a village of just 25 inhabitants. We will have a look at the largest land based halibut fishfarm in the world, and they produce 600 ton food fish every year, sold under the name Glitne.

We will visit a park of wood art based on viking culture, including what is probably the smallest stavechurch in the world. The park is located on a artists farm, and we will be guided by him. Before returning to Balestrand, we have a short stop on the beautiful and narrow fjord; Finnabottn, surronded by steep mountains that plunges straight into the fjord. Return to Balestrand.

Busdrive back to Høyanger included in the price.
