Description

You start by boat from Balestrand and arrive Fjærland after approximately 1,5 h. There the glacier bus is ready to take you on a round trip in Fjærland. First stop is the Norwegian Glacier Museum, where you can touch real glacial ice, see the panorama film from the glacier, through a climate change evolution exhibition and visit the outdoors educational playground. Then the bus goes to the glacier and back again to the pier in Mundal. This trip goes twice a day, but on the morning trip you get to see two glaciers instead of one, and you get some time to spend in Mundal before the boat goes back to Balestrand. In Mundal you will find the Norwegian Book Town which have a wide variety of second hand books. They have around 150.000 books, also many in English, German and French. There is also a cosy souvenir shop at the Tourist Office and a grocery store with a post office nearby. In Mundal, you can hire kayak at the Fjordstova Hotel and there are several possibilities for hiking. Check out Fjærland Guiding! The church from 1861 is also open and there are 2 cafés. By the Bøyabreen Glacier you also find a cafeteria and a souvenir shop. The tourist office will help you with the information you need. The boat trip can be booked at Visit Flåm if you are only interested in the bus, the ticket must be bought at the bus, the same as for the Glacier Museum.
