After taking a train to Flam and then boarding an Expressboat to Balestrand, we were very happy that we decided to stay in Balestrand instead of Flam. Balestrand is a very quiet, friendly, peaceful place situated at the edge of the Sognefjord. We were there 2 nights. There were easy walks and we even rented bikes to go to Dragsvik. The road by the fjord is pretty level and we were able to ride easily. Renting bikes is expensive though! We were a little disappointed that there was not alot of fish available at the restaurants(mostly salmon, which I am allergic to). We were lucky to get fabulous weather. My only complaint is I packed for 50-60 degrees F and it got warmer than that! The fjord waters are a beautiful dark blue--like the deep waters in the Caribbean! I would reccommend anyone going to Norway to visit this lovely village.
