Fjærland Guiding offers guided hikes and glacier walks on request.

The tourist office provides a free Escape the Asphalt guide listing 12 marked walking routes, varying from 30 minutes to three hours. For greater detail, supplement this with Turkart Fjærland (80kr) at 1:50,000, which comes complete with route descriptions and trails indicated. Pull on your boots and you're away. Most walks follow routes the local shepherds would have used until quite recently to lead their flocks to higher summer pastures.


There are two lovely old hotels in the village and a spacious campsite.


The only places in town to eat are the two hotel restaurants.

Drinking & Nightlife

Both of the village's hotel bars are open to non-guests.


Various spots around town sell books, ranging from just a few shelves to the large selection at Bøk & Bilde, where the town's tourist office is located. Most titles tend to be in Norwegian, although you can occasionally find an English title or two.
