Be sure when visiting Balestrand to go out onto the fjords. The rib ride was great fun and the skipper called Ole was a top bloke. He was very knowledgeable about the wild life and showed us some great stuff. The pictures really don't do...More

Despite a late booking, they were very flexible, an we were able to pick our own route due to having a smaller group. Our guide Lars was very friendly and informative, and that's all before mentioning the breathtaking sights! Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our ride yesterday with Lars on his rib boat. Great scenery and stories about this part of the Sognefjord. Would highly recommend the trip.

We met Thor on the pier, next to the kayaking. He can give you a lovely experience by boat (we did not go on rib) and was rightly proud of his fiord, his bait creels and his equipment. We had a wonderful hour or so...More

We took the Naerøyfjord tour from Balestrand with our 1-year-old daughter and another family with an 8-month-old baby. It can be done! The tour guides were extremely helpful in making sure that our little ones were safe and secure. They provided little life jackets and...More

This is a marvelous way to see the fjords. Our group went on two tours--one shorter tour that stayed closer to Balestrand, and a longer tour that went to Naeroyfjord. Both were excellent. The views of course were spectacular. Lars stopped in a few places...More

We were disappointed on this boat ride. The narrative about the sights you stop at was very shallow. You are given warm clothing with head covering and goggles to wear. This made it really difficult to hear the little bit of information that was given....More
