There is a bus/minibus that waits for the boat and takes you to the glacier museum.

There is also a cafe where you can wait until the bus brings you back to the Mundal boat where you return to Balestrand.
From here you can return by taking the Hella ferry and transfer to the ferry going back to Dragsvik. You can also remain on the boat to Balestrand to pick up your car or wait in Balestrand for one hour and take the bus back to Dragsvik. Read more: SMALL WALKING TOURS & Mountain Hikes
