Response from Kjell j, Owner at Fjord and Glacier Tours - Balestrand
Responded Sep 9, 2019
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.
