Balestrand Fjord Sightseeing


The tour starts at the touristinformation in Balestrand. First stop is Esebottn. This is one of the most painted wievs in Europe.

Then we are heading for the mighty Kvinafossen, a waterfall that falls 120 meters straight down. We stop here and take some time to enjoy the sights and to take photograps.

From here the trip goes to Vangsnes on the other side of the fjord with a great view of the Fridtjov statue and then towards to the island of Kvamsøy. This is a small island on a shallow bay -it is said that it was common to stop here to wait for the weather to change. It was also a trading post. The island is also thought to be the smallest in the world with a church. More details about the church here.

On the return we will follow the shoreline towards Balestrand and see the dragon and Swiss style villas ,which is Balestrand is known for, from the sea side before returning to Balestrand harbour.
