People have been trekking through Hellesylt since the end of the last ice age, according to historical research, but tourists only began staying overnight in 1875, when the village’s first hotel was built. The village inspired the setting for Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s long and popular semi-dramatic poem “Brand.” Despite more than 200,000 tourists and 100 cruise ships visiting annually, there’s not much to see here, as Hellesylt is the point of embarkation for a highway journey to Geiranger.
