Sandane - Byrkjelo - Loen - Byrkjelo - Sandane.
This trip takes you from Sandane via Byrkjelo to Loen. The bus ride itself is an adventure and you get to see most of the nature Nordfjord has to offer. Forests, the fjord and mountains are some of the highlights - and all of this you will see from the bus window.
In Loen you will find Loen Skylift, a spectacular attraction and adventure arena. One of the steepest gondolas in the world takes you from the fjord and 1011 meters straight up. A wonderful experience for both young and adults and the trip takes only 5 minutes.
If you are not too keen on heights, you can rent a bicycle at Loen Active. Make a trip to the beautiful Lodalen valley. The bike ride to Lodalen between the high mountains and the ice blue water is something that simply must be experienced. Maybe you can even be tempted to go swimming in the cold glacier water? If you don’t want to go for a swin, it is possible to rent canoes and kayaks at most of the camping sites.
On the way back to Sandane, the bus stops at Byrkjelo. Here you have just enough time to stop by Baker Jon. They sell freshly baked bread and bake goods, and the store is full of local produce.
Departure from: Sandane bus station
About our trips
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
Trips are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the trip is bookable.
