Private Half Day Hellesylt Highlights

Hellesylt is a small village in Stranda Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The village lies at the head of the Sunnylvsfjorden, which is a branch of the Storfjorden, and which the more famous Geirangerfjorden in turn branches off nearby.

Experience four seasons in one location that is ripe with lush green landscapes, snowcapped mountains, farms and stunning water views. Start your epic journey with your knowledgeable, professional driver and guide and visit some of the highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is difficult to drive this road without having several photo stops as the beautiful and wild scenery abounds everywhere. Epic views surround you as you drive the Norangdal Valley and to the end of Norangsdalen to discover the stunning Hotel Union Øye.

From Hellesylt you will travel the old road offering imposing contrasts in the landscape: from rounded shapes bearing the stamp of the ice age to the precipitous mountainsides. View the Norangsdal Valley with steep mountains, cultural history and the raw nature that make this area unique.

At the end of Norangsdalen you will discover the stunning Hotel Union Øye, opened in 1891. This hotel is one of a kind and you will never forget the atmosphere and beautiful surroundings it offers. The hotel offers only 27 rooms and is named after famous people who visited the hotel like Keiser Wilhelm II, King Oscar II, Queen Maud and King Haakon and the writers Karen Blixen, Knut Hamsun, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg.

Take in the majesty as you pass by and view beautiful Hjørundfjord as it cuts 35 kilometers (22 miles) into the massive mountains of the Sunnmøre Alps. A multitude of glaciers, alpine farms, fishing waters and small villages offer unique experiences of fjord life here. The fjord cuts the landscape in two and is flanked on both sides by ragged walls of vertical cliffs.

Your tour also includes a delicious stop for a picnic lunch surrounded in nature, making this the ideal tour for nature aficionados and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

You will end your day driving back to Hellesylt as you catch scenic, jaw-dropping views of Norway's spectacular natural environment. Reserve your spot on this private excursion today and get ready for a half-day short, but comprehensive experience while you make memories of a lifetime!
