Navigating Nordfjordeid by foot
Nordfjordeid is a village with just the right size to reach everything you need by foot. Whether you walk ashore via the Seawalk or arrive the pier by tender boat, you are already in the town center. With shops, cafés, attractions, parks and the wild nature before your feet. Sagastad is only a short walk (10-15 min) from the pier.
