Help with a Norway itinerary

Aside from Oslo, we have a list of places we'd ideally like to visit around the fjords.

-Norway in a nutshell one-way from Oslo to Bergen
-2 nights in Balestrand
-2-3 nights in Bergen (ideally getting 1.5-2 full days there)
Optional: Solvorn, but we won't have a car... is this worth it?

The order isn't important and the nights in Bergen can be split (ie 1 Bergen, 2 Balestrand, 1-2 Bergen).

Here's how I'm thinking
-NiN Oslo to Bergen, sleep in Bergen
-Catch ferry to Balestrand; 2 nights there
-Catch ferry back to Bergen; 1-2 nights there before flying out

Is this a smart way to go or are there better alternatives? Or any other tips?
I considered just doing NiN round trip from Bergen but I feel like we'd miss lots of scenery between Oslo & Myrdal.

You don’t really see the fjords until you go into the smaller towns and villages along the smaller fjords. Four years ago we rented a car from Balestrand so we could drive to Solvorn and Nigardsbreen. It was the best part of our trip. So yes, it’s worth it.
