Roundtrip Sandane - Loen - Sandane | Travel Like the Locals
Sandane - Byrkjelo - Loen - Byrkjelo - Sandane.
This trip takes you from Sandane via Byrkjelo to Loen. The bus ride itself is an experience and you get to see most of the nature Nordfjord has to offer. Forest, fjord and mountains are some of the high points and all of this you will see from the bus window.
Well in Loen, you will find Loen Skylift, a spectacular attraction and adventure arena. One of the steepest gondolas in the world takes you from the fjord and 1011 meters straight up. A wonderful experience for both young and adults and the trip takes only 5 minutes.
If you are scared of heights, maybe its better to stay on the ground. At Loen Active, you can rent a bike and head for beautiful Lodalen. The bike ride to Lodalen between the high mountains and the ice blue water is something that must be experienced. Maybe it is tempting with a bath in the cold glacier water? If a bath is not tempting, but you want to see Lodalen from the lake, it is possible to rent kayaks and canoes at most campsites.
On the bus on the way to Sandane, the bus stops at Byrkjelo. There you have just enough time to stop by Baker Jon. They sell freshly baked bread and bake goods, and the store is full of local goods.
Departure from: Sandane bus station
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.
