There is a very tiny place where you can do laundry in Balestrand. The woman at the TI was really helpful to us.

It is really a bike shop, and the guy there did not have much useful to say or to help us with. There was a map of the town, but few brochures on activities.

Amanda, obviously a Brit, speaks English and helped us tremendously, with specifics on various hiking trails as well as eateries in the area. She also hooked us up with a private boat tour of the fjord at a reasonable rate. I'm sure she can answer any question one might have about the area.

This tourist office is conveniently located at the quay. Wr visited the office twice, and dealt with two different people. Both spoke English perfectly and made helpful suggestions. They were unable to help us with accommodations outside Balestrand, but I think it is the system, not the people. Overall, highly recommended.

We spent only about 24 hours in Balestrand and the highlight of our time there was renting a bike from the tourist information center and biking the Esefjord to Dragsvik. We were able to do the 6 mile bike right each way in just a little over 2 hours which would have gone much quicker but we made plenty of... More
