On most of the trips (except on weekdays in April and October) you have some time to explore Hellesylt. Between the bus stop and the ferry harbour you find the Hellesyltfossen waterfall. This is a mighty waterfall and is one of the most photographed sites in the area. It’s an impressive sight early in the summer when all the snow melts.

At Hellesylt you also find the Per Gynt Galleri. The main purpose of the gallery is to present the enormous wooden reliefs by artist and woodcarver Oddvin Parr (1933 - 2010). The works goes from floor to ceiling, and all the motives are from the Norwegian author Henrik Ibsen's work "Peer Gynt".

From Hellesylt, the trip goes by bus through the Hornindal valley where you pass the Hornindalsvatnen lake – the deepest lake (514 m) in Northern Europe. You then go on to Grodås and then to Stryn.

Stryn is a lively little town with shops, restaurants and other service offerings. The local clothing brands Ricco Vero and Skogstad are popular to bring home.

From Stryn it is easy to continue to Loen using a local bus. In Loen you find Loen Skylift, Via Ferrata and many other activities. Use the Skyss travel planner to find departure times. You can buy tickets on board and pay with a credit card or cash.
