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. Its mesmerising backdrop of towering snow-capped mountains and panoramic fjord vistas has been captivating travellers and inspiring artists for over a century, making it one of the region’s best-loved resorts. With buses and express boats operating in all directions, Balestrand is a perfect base for exploring Norway’s longest and deepest fjord. The Flåm railway, Fjaerland ferry and Jøstedal glacier are just some of the notable attractions. Alternatively you can relax amidst the peaceful surroundings, painting or strolling beside the fjord, or enjoying the superb scenery from a bicycle or row boat. This is also spectacular walking territory with trails rising behind the village to the peaks and lakes of the plateau beyond.
