Learn more - as we see Balestrand’s famous red dragon villas from the seaside. I tell stories about some of the houses. Meet me also as a local and see were i grow up next to St.Olaf Church and Kvikne’s Hotell.
Fish-pot: Did you know Wrasse fish is used in Norwegian salmon farming to eat the sea lice of the salmons body and to create a better quality of life for salmon in the farm nett. Interesting and educational.
Our next stop and do some angling for sandwhiting on the beutiful Esefjord scenery. My mother used to send me out fishing sandwitings for lunch. The are funny to catch and taste good. In spring we might see nesting Herons up in the evergreen forest in spectacular Esebotn. Last summer it was 25 nests!
“Some guests whant to sitt on the boat’s bow… they want to emrace the feeling of freedom as we drive further into the scenery. Fresh air. High mountains. Still Water and mirror image”- Capt.Tor
On the way out to the next fjord (if booked Balestrand Fjord Trolling), we explore a river delta. The water here is clear, while the water in the next fjord is green due to sediments from glacier-rivers and plankton. We see picturesque Norwegian farms in beautiful cultural landscape. In the spring, the sheep graze all the way down to the water’s edge and the fruit trees blossoms. Oystercatchers with their characteristic orange beak and feets, guard their nests and make life.. Field flowers & seaweed..
Extra option: In April- May when the snowmelting its greatest, I can offer my guests a trip toKvinnefossen. - a 120 meters higt waterfall (Video). This area is also known for it’s historical scaffolding fishing for salmon. Sognefjord’s tides flow hit land right here. One should be a little more robust getting to do this, because here can be harsh waves in this area. If you like waves, it’s just fun. In May, the fruit trees also flourish. Duration is then 30 minutes longer and total cost is nok 1900. Let me know..
