NIN Tour - Overnight and Activity Suggestions?


My husband and I received tons of great advice from this forum, but have one more question.

If we leave Bergen on Sunday morning (5 May) and do the Norway in a Nutshell (NIN) Tour, what side excursion and overnight stay would be recommended before having to be in Oslo by Monday night (6 May)?

*Stave Church visits. We've heard Borgund is a good option. Are there any others? If so, what are the public transportation options that are best?

*Kayaking trip. Where is the best place to go kayaking (through an outfitter/company)?

*Overnight stay. What is the best place to stay overnight on Sunday, before going to Oslo on Monday?

We would like to do something easy on Sunday afternoon and on Monday morning before having to leave.

If this schedule is too aggressive, please let us know. If it's recommended we arrive in Oslo on Tuesday (take one more day to explore the Sognefjord region) we can do that as well....just have to make a small adjustment to our schedule.

Thank you!!!

This company operates in the area


Borgund is a good option, but a detour, it's in Lærdal not along the Bergen line.

Undredal is closest (the FLåm-Gudvangen boat passes Undredal), but without the famous exterior found in Hopperstad and Borgund.
