A fishing trip should feel safe, easy and engaging for everyone. Together with our guests, we have created a quality Sognefjord attraction that consists of: Fjord Angling, Fishing trip to the smallholdings and Scenic Boat route in Fjærlandsfjorden.

This genuine 3 in 1 solution has received the award: VARDE - Experience quality, and it contains:

1- Fjord Angling in beautiful #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: SandHvitting. They are fun to fish, bite easily on the hook and taste good for lunch. Some call them “Sea Chicken”

Catch a fish and make your own dinner when you get home. Butter-fried Sand whitings served on a piece of seed loaf and with a homemade salad and a bottle of fruit drink: “Spruddlande 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.

2- Fishing trip (trolling) to the smallholdings in the beautiful #fjærlandsfjorden is excellent for traditional trolling allong the clifs for pollock, macrell, salmon and trout. This is the local way of fishing and relaxing in the fjord landscape. The Fjærlandsfjord in bright season is green colored by the meltwater from the glacier village #fjærland. Here we also find diverse animals and bird life and marine mammals.

3- Scenic Boat route in Fjærlandsfjorden - The energy in #fjærlandsfjorden is special, more original and therefore more powerful. There is something in here between the high mountains that nourishes both the heart and the spirit. It makes us strong men and women. Clean water, fresh air, homesteads. Here you can find peace, inspiration and space for wonder. In the old days, this beautiful fjord was referred to as “Fjordland”
