BSMV - Proposed Excursion, Saturday May 3

A boat is chartered for Saturday afternoon to take us to Fjærland. Here we will be transferred by bus to the Glacier Museum and to the foot of `Jostedalsbreen', the largest glacier in Norway. (The museum has been designed by a famous Norwegian architect, Sverre Fehn.)

Fjærland is situated innermost in one of the most scenic arms of the Sognefjord, about 1 1/2 hours by boat from Balestrand. It is a very small village which could - until very recently - only be reached by boat. Below is a map of the Sognefjord with the location of Balestrand, Fjærland and `Jostedalsbreen'.
