Tour description

On this tour, a sightseeing boat will take you from Balestrand into the idyllic Fjærlandsfjorden to Fjærland. The scenery in the Fjærlandsfjord is absolutely breathtaking. The narrow Fjærlandsfjord with its steep and forested mountainsides leads you to the edge of the majestic Jostedalen Glacier.
On the boat tour, you can buy lunch, snacks, and beverages while cruising the fantastic Fjærlandsfjord. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, and more than 100 different bird species have been observed in the Bøyaøyri Nature Reserve. On arrival at Fjærland, a bus will take you to the Norwegian Glacier Museum. The Norwegian Glacier Museum is an interactive museum for the Whole Family, which gives you knowledge about glaciers and climate in New innovative ways.
From the Norwegian Glacier Museum, the tour continues up to Bøyabreen glacier – a branch of Jostedalsbreen glacier. Here you can take some photos and see how the glacier presses itself into the landscape. The bus returns to Fjærland quay, and the sightseeing boat takes you back to Balestrand. The trip back gives you the chance to reflect on the fact that these fjords were shaped several thousand years ago by ice.
