Heritage Walk

Eli-Grete or Gard tells the story of the art village Balestrand and the people who lived here in the artist colony.

In cooperation with Kviknes Hotel the walk starts in Høyviksalen (the Høyvik hall, with furniture made by (great) grandfather Ivar Høyvik). It continues to the harbor, with its living artist scene, and then to St. Olaf’s Church (the English church), the statue of King Bele from the saga of Fritjof the Brave, and some of the characteristic dragon-style villas. The tour ends in the Cider House with a cider tasting and interpretation program. 

The tour lasts about 2 hours.

Thursdays in July and August at 11:30.
