The enchanting little village of Balestrand lies on a scenic promontory of orchards and farmland on the northern shores of the famous Sognefjord, Norway’s longest and deepest fjord stretching over 200km. Balestrand’s mesmerising backdrop of towering snow-capped mountains and panoramic vistas has been captivating travellers for over a century. With buses and express boats operating in all directions, Balestrand is a perfect base for exploring and the Flåm railway, Fjærland ferry and Jøstedal Glacier are just some of the notable attractions. There is also much opportunity to simply relax amidst the peaceful surroundings or enjoying the superb scenery from a bicycle or row boat. Balestrand also gives you access to spectacular walking territory with trails rising behind the village to the peaks and lakes of the plateau beyond.

Why not try the Fjord Explorer or Taste of Norway multi-centre holidays that stop in Balestrand? Or Highlights of the Fjords for an escorted tour. Our brand new escorted tour, Bergen to Oslo Fjord Experience, has a scenic journey to Balestrand.
