Getting There -- From the resort of Balestrand, ferries depart from Fjaerland at 8:15am daily. Several buses run daily between Fjaerland and the transportation hub at Sogndal, taking 45 minutes and costing NOK110 ($22/£11) one-way. Daily buses also run to and from Stryn, taking 2 hours and costing NOK220 ($44/£22) one-way. Motorists from Olden can take E39, following the signposts to Skei, a village at the base of Lake Jølster. There the road goes under the glacier for more than 6km (3 3/4 miles) for the final lap into Fjaerland. The tunnel on the Skei road is free; however, if you're driving from Sogndal, you must pay a toll of NOK200 ($40/£20).
