Fjord & Glacier tour from Balestrand

  • Fjord Cruises and Fjord Safari

Experience amazing fjord landscapes, the Bøyabreen glacier, the Supphelle glacier and the Norwegian Glacier Museum - all in one exciting tour!

On this tour a sightseeing boat will take you from Balestrand into the idyllic Fjærlandsfjorden to Fjærland. The full day tour let you also see the glacier Supphellebreen! 
From Fjærland you continue by bus to the Norwegian Glacier Museum where you can learn about the history and the “inner life” of the glacier. A spectacular film by Ivo Caprino about Jostedalsbreen glacier is shown at the museum.

From the Norwegian Glacier Museum the tour continues with Brebussen (The Glacier Bus) to Bøyabreen glacier – a branch of the Jostedalsbreen glacier. Here there’s time to take a few photos and to 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 by ice for several thousand of years ago.
