We stayed at the Balestrand Hotel just for one night sadly. It was a great stay. The hosts were so nice. Not sure if they will pick you up to or not. We arrived by ferry, we took a Norled ferry from Bergen with our final destination being Flam and hopped off in Balestrand for a

We’d wanted to stay at Kviknes but there were no vacancies. What a stroke of luck. Our stay at Balestrand Hotel was an unexpected treat. We spent a lot of time our our balcony drinking wine and looking at the beautiful fjord. Breakfast is quite good.

I can only comment on the Norway part. Given your projected itinerary, you do not need a car. We rented one for a few days from Balestrand but that's only because we were also staying at a hostel further north. The owners of the Balestrand Hotel will come to the ferry and pick you up. They are wonderful, in every way. Have a great time. Norway is a gorgeous country and particularly where you are going.

Hi, you need to look at the norled web site. There is only the Norled express boat from Flam to Balestrand for these two dates. It is a daily 15.30 departure from Flam due into Balestrand at 16.55. Recommended to make reservation. Kind regards, Unni-Marie

Hello, you can rent bikes from the local tourist office located at the harbor. There is normally a good selection of bikes and they are well maintained. It is maybe a five minute walk from Balestrand Hotell to the TI. Let me know if you should need more info. We look forward to be seeing you here in the summer.

"get a room that faces the fjord"
"Ask for a fjord view room, and ideally at the end of the hall, which has the best views and would mean one less shared wall."
"Fjord-side is spectacular, back yard view is pleasant, v. quiet town."
"Ask for a room with a fjord view."
"Higher up floor the better on the view side, but your WiFi will probably be a bit slower"
