Oslo-Voss-Gudvangen-Balestrand

Is it possible to travel from Gudvangen to Balestrand by boat? The timetables I have looked at appear to make connections midtfjord between the Bergen-Flam boat and the Flam-Gudvangen boat going from Balestrand to Voss but not the other direction. Any advice?

    "midtfjord" means "middle of the fjord".
    During the tourist season, they have a transfer in the middle of the fjord.
    But there is no boat to Voss as that is inland. There is a train from Bergen to Voss and a bus from Gudvangen to Voss. If you want to try the famous Flåm rail, you take the train from Voss to Myrdal where the train to Flåm goes from. There is also a bus from Flåm to Gudvangen if you want to take the fjord boat one way

    Thanks--I think my question was a little misleading, though. I'm hoping to travel by boat from Gudvangen to Balestrand which would require a transfer midtfjord between two boats. While the timetables seem to indicate such a transfer can happen for travel from Balestrand to Gudvangen, I don't know if I can transfer boats going from Gudbvangen to Balestrand. Do you know if there is a midtfjord transfer going northbound or is there another boat connection point? Or do I have to get off the boat at Kaupanger and take a bus to Balestrand?

    I have never taken that boat myself, so I'm not sure. But the table should be clear about those things. The best place to check it all out is here:
