What you'll do

Welcome to Norway

Welcome to Bergen! Start your west coast adventure by picking up your rental car and getting on the road. You will drive about 4.5 hrs (201 km) north to get to your destination, Værlandet. The drive will include a ferry over Norway’s biggest fjord, the Sognefjord, and end with another taking you out to the island.

Værlandet is almost as far west as you can get in Norway. The archipelago is home to just a few hundred permanent residents. Here you’ll find that there is almost n...Read All

Explore Værlandet and Bulandet

Start your day with a visit to the Norwegian Sea Bird centre where you can learn more about the hundreds of  sea birds who call Værlandet home. Many of them aren’t permanent residents, but there is always a good chance spotting the white tailed eagle!

To Fjærland Fjordstove

Leave the open sea today, as you drive east towards the mountains. Your drive today will take about 3.5 hrs (155 km) and it will take you past small villages and one of the country’s deepest lakes.

You have a few options for which route to take, but we recommend starting on the Rv5 which takes you to Lærdal, where you join the E16. This stretch is a National Tourist Route, because it’s one of the country’s most scenic drives. You will also drive through the incredible Lærdal tunnel: The world’s longest road tunnel!
