Some tips in between:
+ take a credit card or cash with you on the ferry as you will need to pay for
+ although it is summer there may be snow in the mountains, so be aware of
+ do not drive faster than the speed limit as it can get you literally into
+ the house can be found behind our little sign on the right of the street. You
will see a little bus stop on the right and a downward way just infront of it. That is the way leading to the house.

One routealongthe E16headsinnortheast direction, and passes the
Ski region of Voss and the famous Vikafjell.A spectacularride. At the end of the journey across this mountain
route you will reach the villageofVangsneson
the oppositeside of the Sognefjord. You will by then already see
Balestrand. The ferry takes you then from Vangsnes via
Hella to Dragsvik..
Fromthere it isonlyanother 10minutesto Balestrand.
The second option is to head up north along the E39 and Oppedal.. Here the ferry will take you to Lavik. After
the crossing you will reach the Villa in nearly exactly 2hrs going along the Sognefjord which lies on the right side of you. So keep straight!
Travelling to us from Oslo takes ca. 7-8hrs and goes along the E16 heading North
crossing a mountain terrain and the famous Hemsedal region. Here you need to take 2 ferries. The first ferry is the Fodnes -
Manheller. Landed on the other side in Manheller drive towards Sogndal. There it is important to search for the direction Balestrand / Leikanger (Rv55). One roundabout behind the town
centre will give you the option to turn left and you will then reach theferry in Hella. This will take you to Dragsvik and from there to Balestrand.
