Norway in a Nutshell from Bergen

We will be in Norway the first week in June 2015. We want to leave Bergen head to Voss, bus to Gudvangen then up the Næroyfjord on a ferry to Balestrand where we will stay for a few days. Is there a ferry that goes from Gudvangen to Balestrand? From Balestand we want to continue down the Aurlandsfjord to Flåm then train to Myrdal. Is there a ferry that leaves Balestrand that will take you to Flåm? Basically, we are doing the Nutshell in reverse from what is stated in the books. I've looked at a couple of ferry sites but it doesn't seem to answer my specific question. If anyone can help me with any information I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

The Balestrand-Flam boat express boat described on p. 323 of Rick's Scandinavia book is now operated by Norled. Last summer, it departed Balestrand at 11:50 daily. Next summer's schedule is not yet published there. See also Guidebook updates.

Thanks, Laura. I'm still trying to plan what we want to do and catch all the ferries and trains the most economical and efficient way without backtracking. It's tough.
