We took HAL’s “Urnes Stave Church and Scenic Drive” excursion. This was a beautiful church with lots of history and the local tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a quirky sense of humor. A beautiful interior, especially for something so old. The construction of the building was magnificent. The scenery on the bus trip was great and the excursion tour guide made it fun by pointing out things like her old elementary school and other buildings from her past as she had grown up in that area. The tour description had suggested bringing a hat and gloves as the ferry ride portion of this tour could get very chilly. We were very lucky to have a beautiful sunny 77 degree day and could wear shirtsleeves. This was a great tour.

We found a tour on land offered by a local farmer. He took us to his farm where he has llama and a unique brand of sheep. We were given a llama to walk along the river. We expected the walk to be very short but, in fact, we had a good amount of time with these gentle animals. Their cute faces had a halter and a long leash to walk them with. The llamas were about 5 to 5 1/2 feet tall and very sweet. The sheep had the curved horns of a Rocky Mountain sheep and looked similar except for more wooly coat and much smaller. Then we went on a hike to view the lake. It was a nice hike but there was supposed to be a walk continuing to see the waterfalls but we couldn't find it. If you want to see the waterfall up close you would need to go along the road about 3 1/2 kilometers but we didn't get a chance to do that.

Even smaller village of 250 people! We were surprised we couldn’t find independent excursions and then we showed up and understood why. It almost feels like the ship is an imposition on the town. We booked a 9am excursion to hike the town. It’s not super necessary as we saw lots of other cruise passengers on the hike but we got a lot of fun info from our tour guide. The hike is short we were done maybe around 11am. We walked around the town a bit more and ate lunch outside the “tourist center” before meeting up with our second excursion to Urnes Stave Church. The tour guide was excellent - the stave church was pretty cool but a pretty short part of the tour. A lot of the time is spent driving. The waterfall we stopped at was really picturesque.
