Balestrand to Gudvangen

I'm staying in Balestrand for 3 nights and will head back to Oslo from there. I don't want to miss the Naeroyfjord, what is the best way to see it?

I've struggled with this as well. There's no simple solution. And, if you want to see both the Naeroyfjord and ride the Flamsbana the best I was able to sort out is needing to stay one night on the other side of the Sognefjord in Flam.

Assuming you don't have a car, take the Express Boat that connects Balestrand to Flam: - shows up around noon.

See the "Bergen - Sogn - Flåm - Bergen" map.

Once in Flam take the Flam-Gudvangen ferry: <- this takes you through Naeroyfjord.

Depending on what you want to do from there you can:

  1. Take a bus from Gudvangen to Voss, which connects to the train (Oslo or Bergen).
  2. Take a bus from Gudvangen back to Flam
  3. Take a ferry back to Flam.

If you go to Flam again you can take the Flamsbana train that is recommended and that also connects up to the Oslo-Bergen train line in Myrdal.
