Your tour begins with a drive along the Borgundfjord, through the modern suburbs to the Medieval trading center of Borgund. Here, in a delightful open-air setting you'll find the Sunnmore Museum. This wonderful museum is comprised of various types of farmhouses and boathouses which have been moved to this site from all over the region. The Museum also houses a number of different old boats. The shipbuilding traditions of the area hold their traditions from long ago, and boats built here were believed to be the most reliable to be found along the coast. On display here are also replicas of the so-called Kvalsund boat from the year 700 AD and the even older Fjørtoft boats. Alongside is also the fishing vessel "Heland" - better known as the "Shetland Bus" as it was used to carry Norwegian partisans across the North Sea during World War II.
