A day in Balestrand

Jump to last reply

I will be spending two nights in Balestrand in late May. I arrive at 16:55 on a Tuesday on the express boat from Flåm (leaving on the train from Oslo early that morning), and I depart on Thursday morning at 7:50 on the express boat to Bergen. (I've already purchased tickets).

I love to hike, and looking forward to exploring the area on foot, but I don't know if I can spend the entire day hiking in and around Balestrand, and I'm wondering if I should plan to rent a car for the day to take a drive. And if I do that, can someone recommend a round-trip drive from Balestrand that would take me to some great scenic spots where I could get out and and do some short hikes?

Since I'll have a lot of daylight, I figure I'll have plenty of time to explore when I arrive on Tuesday evening as well as all day Wednesday. Just trying to determine how to make the best use of my time.

Thanks!
