    Gudvangen Things to Do

    On the ferry trip along the Nærøyfjord seagulls will join the ride. It seems that they expect peole to feed them, so they fly partly in the same speed as the boat and by this offer great chances to take beautiful photos. So have your tele lense with you, but take care not ot drop it in the fjord when changing lenses!

    Descending to Flåm, in summertime the train stops at Kjosfossen Waterfall. It is a wonderful oportunity to admire this beautiful waterfall and to have a souvenir from this wonderful place.

    Undredal Things to Do

    Undredal is a small village beautifully situated on the Aurlandsfjord. It is well known for two things. Firstly, there is the stave church, thought to date originally from the middle of the 12th century but whose present appearance is largely due to 17th century decorations and fittings followed by a major 1722 restoration. Secondly, there is...

  • That's Undredal too!

    Undredal Favorites

    Another encounter with Undredal on the ferry going to Flam was a pleasant surprise - I had not thought we would be passing it or see it so clearly, like a Christmas card picture with the church in the middle. The clouds, so low on that day, shrouded the place in mystery, making the picture even more charming.

  • Walk around to see the great scenery

    Undredal Things to Do

    There aren't many things to do at Undredal but the scenery is so stunning taking a walk across the bridge and up the narrow mountain road to see the fjord or going down to the fjord are well worth the effort. Perhaps by the time you come back the guide will arrive and take you around the old church?

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting the Fritjov staue is a must.
    If you like hiking in the mountains, the surrounding mountains are spectaculer and absolutely among the best places for hiking. The surrounding mountains contain lakes, hilltops, valleys, glaciers, forest and rivers.

    If you like to go fishing, you can do from shore, you can rent a boat, or you can go sportsfishing in the river, for real norwegian salmon.
