Cycle to the other side of the narrow and idyllic Esefjord (9km). Visit the enamel workshop, the arboretum , the nature trail at Klibberg, the doll collection, and have refreshments at Dragsvik Fjord Hotel.
Or do the 'Three Fjord Ride' from Balestrand- Esesfjord(9km)- Sværefjord(8km)- Vetlefjord(7km). Approx. 24 km each way or do just part of it!
This route is wonderful and goes all along the fjord edge. At Dragsvik there is a hotel for refreshments. After that just the quiet road, the huge fjord, the mountains and picturesque farms and hamlets along the way. Fjord views all the way and with different mountains and valleys coming into view as you cycle along. You can also go a further 5km from Vetlefjord along a lovely little branch road to the farms at Menes, where you turn around and ride back.
Another alternative is to cycle to Kvamsøy (13km - direction Høyanger).Here you can see across to a beautiful church from the middle ages on the small island of Kvamsøy and relax in the fine recreation area where there are sculptures and facilities for barbecues, swimming and ball games
