Balestrand, Norway

Balestrand is a pleasant tiny fjord town renowned for its spectacular breathtaking views from the highest peaks. Most travelers arrive here on the express boat from Bergen or Flåm to stroll down its petite harbor and enjoy the surrounding nature.

The town has a unique aquarium which is worth visiting for a look at the marine life in the Sognefjord. The Norwegian Travel Museum (Norsk Reiselivsmuseum), featuring photos showing this part of Norway over the past 150 years, interactive exhibits, and souvenirs is also a must-see. Balestrand has long history as a tourist resort and it was one of the favorites of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany.

The peaceful atmosphere of uniting with nature attracts people from all over the world as cycling and hiking in this magnificent fjord and mountain landscape is a truly wonderful experience.
