Stryn - Hellesylt - Stryn.
This bus ride takes you from Stryn to Hellesylt. After about 20 minutes, the bus drives past Hornindalsvatnet. This lake is known for being the deepest in Northern Europe (514 m), and stories have been told from early days about the creatures that exist in the deepness of the lake. Maybe you are lucky and can see a sea monster when you drive past?
When you arrive at Hellesylt you have many opportunities to fill your day with exciting activities. A short walk from the bus station you will find the Hellesyltfossen waterfall. It is a mighty waterfall and is one of the most photographed motives in the area. The waterfall is particularly impressive early in the summer when all the snow melts.
If you continue the walk, you will find the Per Gynt Museum. The main purpose of this gallery is to present the artist and woodcarver Oddvin Parr (1933 - 2010) and his enormous wooden art that goes from floor to ceiling. All the works are inspired by the Norwegian author Henrik Ibsen's work "Peer Gynt".
If you take one of the early buses from Stryn to Hellesylt, you can take the ferry over to Geiranger. The Geirangerfjord is a 15 km long arm of Storfjorden and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fjord is one of Norway's most popular attractions, and gives you a spectacular presentation of the fjord, the mountains and the many waterfalls – the soul of Norway. Remember to buy a return ticket, and be back at Hellesylt in time to take the bus back to Stryn.

When you are back in Stryn, full of new experiences and impressions, sit down at a cafe and enjoy a good meal while you watch your new photoes and the bustling life in the streets.

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.
