On this tour you can experience coastal and fjord landscapes and Bøyabreen glacier on the same day. Your journey starts in Bergen, and you can enjoy the wonderful coastal landscape among islands, islets and rocks, as well as the world-famous long stretch of Sognefjorden on your way to Balestrand.
On your arrival at Balestrand – a village that is a favourite among artists – you change to a smaller sightseeing boat that takes you further into the idyllic Fjærlandsfjorden to Fjærland. From here the trip continues by bus to the Norwegian Glacier Museum.
From the Norwegian Glacier Museum the tour continues up to Bøyabreen glacier – a branch of Jostedalsbreen glacier. Here You can take a few photos and see how the glacier presses itself into the landscape. The bus returns to Fjærland quay, and the sightseeing boat takes you back to Balestrand.
