How to get there
Important info: Hovden airport will be closed for four weeks over the summer – meaning you will need to fly to Ålesund (yes, there will be boat transport to Bjørke!). If you’ve already booked a flight please contact Widerøe for refunds (you will not want to fly to Sandane if they suggest that – if so they’ll have to make sure they get you to Bjørke).
Indiefjord 2023 takes place in Bjørke, a village in the municipality of Volda in Norway. Bjørke is found in the innermost part of the beautiful Hjørundfjord. There are plenty of ways to get to Bjørke for our guests!
