Experience fjord landscapes and the Bøyabreen glacier on the same day. The Mini Glacier Tour include visit to Bøyabreen glacier as well as Norwegian Glacier Museum in Fjærland. The Scenery in the Fjærlandsfjord is absolutely breathtaking and the narrow Fjærlandsfjord with its steep and forested mountainsides leads you to the edge of the majestic Jostedalen Glacier. On the boat tour you may enjoy a good dinner, snacks and beverage while cruising the fantastic Fjærlandsfjord. On arrival in Fjærland, a bus will take you to the Norwegian Glacier Museum. The Norwegian Glacier Museum is an interactive museum for the Whole Family, who gives you knowledge about glaciers and climate in New inovative ways. Here you can take 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.

Dear Lazzaro Thank you for your feedback. We will from 2020 season change schedule so arrival in Fjærland will be 13:25 and depart Fjærland at 15:30. This will increase time in Fjærland from 1 Hour 40 minutes to 2 hours and 5 minutes, an increase of 25%. We will consider further changes to schedule to maximise experience on this tour.

I did the full day trip starting at 8 am. The trip felt like a hop on hop off bus tour. Could not get very close to the glaciers. If you have only 1 day in Balestrand, I'd recommend staying in Balestrand and doing some hikes instead of visiting fjaerland. If you decide to do
