Modern express boats depart Bergen city centre for Sogndal daily throughout the year. On the trip up the fjord the boats call at several villages including Vik, Balestrand and Leikanger.
From 1 May to 30 September express boats also run daily from Bergen all the way to Flåm. These boats connect with ferries to Gudvangen, Kaupanger and Lærdal and transfer passengers out in the middle of the fjord. Timetables at www.fjord1.no
