Balestrand Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 60 photos

A little piece of paradise hidden amongst the Norwegian fjords. Balestrand is a gem of a village. It lies on the shores of Sognefjord, the world's longest and deepest fjord, and has been a tourist magnet for a long time.

If you want to experience the beauty of the fjord, there is no better way of doing so than by taking one of the boats or ferries that sail on the narrowest and most picturesque fjord arms.

    I noticed your comment about strolling around and how you'd find funeral mounds. Do you know whose funeral mounds they are? My husband's ancestors came from here. Thanks.
