On the outskirts of Sandane you can also have a look at the Holvikejekt. The ship from 1881 is a reminder of the important trade that took place between Nordfjord and Bergen. The Holvikejekt was used to export wood logs and other products made of tree to Bergen, and it returned here with flour, sugar, clothes and other products from the city. The ship is 20 meters long and 8,6 meters wide, and was one of the biggest of its kind. Today it is the only one of its kind left in original form.
