After breakfast at Myrkdalen (preparing your own lunch bag at the breakfast table) we start our bicycling towards Vikafjellet Mountain Pass. Today will be a tough climb to start with, till we reach the highest point of the mountain pass at nearly 1000 m.a.s. before we continue descending downhill to Vik, which is by the mighty Sognefjord. 

In the small village of Vik we will have a quick look at at least two churches, one built in stone and the other a proper wooden stave church, before enjoying our picnic lunch bag in Vik. 

Continue bicycling along Sognefjorden to Vangsnes before catching the ferry to Dragsvik. 

Bicycling the last 10 km on the northern side of the Sognefjord to the great, gorgeous wooden hotel building right on the dock in Balestrand. 

Perhaps we will have time for a nice short walk by the fjord before dinner at the hotel.

Breakfast in the hotel, remember to bring yourself a lunch bag from the breakfast table. Today we are bicycling over the Gaularfjellet Mountain Pass. Starting gently with almost flat terrain by the fjord, we will enjoy an outdoor lunch at the viewpoint Utsikten, when finished conquering all the uphill serpentine bends, then continuing on our way to Flatheim Friluftsgard, a charming guesthouse indeed, on a little farm with sheep and chicken walking around, situated beautifully at the river bank of Gaula.

Dinner will be served in the evening.
