The section to Solvorn is on lovely sweepers that allow you to let go of some speed and find a good flow. The last part down to Solvorn is just charming and must be enjoyed and if you are generous with yourself, you can order lunch at Ole Henrik at Walaker Hotel, it must be booked. The ferry from Solvorn is a small ferry with few departures so it is wise to book a seat on tel. 992 78 837 or booking@lustrabaatane.no.

Remember that you have the opportunity to drive past Urnes stave church dated 1140 and make a stop at the 218 meter high Feigefossen waterfall. From Skjolden to Turtragrø (900 meters above sea level) you drive the Sognefjellsvegen road, which is a national tourist route. Feel free to stop at Turtragrø. The 32 km long Tindevegen from Turtagrø to Årdal is a fantastic experience that you will remember, on this stretch you can stop several times to enjoy the view! The road down to Øvre Årdal is steep, winding, narrow and fun, and a coffee break might be just the thing here! Then the trip goes along the fjord to Fodnes and the ferry that takes you to Mannheller. The tour continues from here to Sogndal and along the Sognefjord to Balestrand.
