A fjord favourite on the majestic Sognefjord

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 enjoy the outdoors with walking routes along the shore.
