The village of Lærdalsøyri, usually called Lærdal, is where the lovely green dale of the same name – whose fertile lower reaches produce the juiciest of cherries – meets the fjord. A quiet place nowadays, it was once a busy port, where produce from the surrounding area was loaded on Bergen-bound boats. A fire swept through streets in the town's southwest in early 2014, and while devastating for those who lost homes and were injured, it has not affected the town's charm for visitors.
