BALESTRAND FJORD ANGLING

Is a quality "meet the locals" in Norway Sognefjord. A guided boating experience with a nice entertaining combination of sightseeing, storytelling, fjord fishing and childhood memories.



Beautiful Balestrand is close to the fjord and nature. A popular, must do, 5 star and all in one attraction. Price includes 4 people in private boat. Varde experience quality award. Trips all year round. Suitable for couples, family with children and friends traveling together. Card payment on arrival at Balestrand Adventure House. On this inspiring trip, you get to see the famous red dragon villas in Balestrand from the sea side and learn a little about the people who built them. After 30 minutes of sightseeing, entertaining and good storytelling by fabulous Captain Tor, you have two options for further boat trip:

1) Fun Angling in beautiful, legendary #esefjorden surrounded by high picturesque mountains: When I was a little boy, my mother used to send me out on the fjord to catch the fish called: Sand Whiting. They are fun to fish, bite easily on the hook and taste good for lunch. Some call them “Sea Chicken”

Catch some fish with Captain Tor and make your own dinner when you get home. Butter-fried Sand Whiting served on a piece of seed-loaf and with a homemade salad and a bottle of local made fruit drink: “Sprudllande Margaret” from Balholm. It tastes rhubarb and evokes nostalgic summer memories. If you light some candles and put on some bossa nova music in the background, you have a real dining experience you do together. Easily buy ingredients in the grocery store next to the Balestrand Adventure house.

or 2) Scenic route to small homestead farms in the beautiful #fjærlandsfjorden: We speed up our boat and drive inwards towards the outer part of Fjærlandsfjorden which in bright season is green colored by meltwater from the glacier village #fjærland.

The energy in #fjærlandsfjorden is special, more original. Therefore, it is more powerful. There is something here in between high mountains that nourishes both the heart and the spirit. It makes us strong men and women. Clean water, fresh air, cottages between high mountains. Here you can find peace, inspiration and value. In the 1800s this beautiful fjord is referred to as “Fjordland”
