Great 3 hour experience for our family of 5 (kids’ ages 7, 10, and 13). Captain Tor did a great job finding ways for everyone to be involved in the experience. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the area, what it was like growing up here, and of course the boating and fishing. We caught sharks, starfish, mackerel, lobster, crab, and much more. Captain Tor gave good instructions on how to filet and cook the mackerel as well as what to serve with it.

We spent an incredible April day out on the fjords around Balestrand with Captain Tor and can't recommend the experience enough.

There was (successful) fishing, speeding along in the boat, seeing some amazing sights, and hearing some local history and great stories from Tor who is a great host.

This is a must if you're in the Balestrand area.

My husband and son loved their fishing experience with Captain Tor! They caught and released a shark and pulled in crabs, flounder, haddock and starfish. They also saw porpoises and an eagle nest as well as herons. Captain Tor had many great stories of the area. Overall a great morning!

Words can not express how great this experience is. We came to fish. Went home from one of the best tours we ever experienced (along with four delicious fish).
Capt. Tor is authentic and one heek of a story teller. He knows his childhood area like his back pocket and is eager to share his authentic stories with you, when you're on board his little private fishing boat. He makes the trip around four nearby fjords in an adequate pace. The length of the ride is perfect. Had it been one bit longer our minds would have exploded from all the beauty we witnessed. We came to fish. We came home with an extraordinary nature experience. Thank a million Capt. Tor!

It’s not just a fishing trip, it’s more of seeing the fjord from the local perspective. Captain Tor knows everything about the fjord, you can ask him and he will answer all your questions!
You will have unique chance to hear the story about One of the most longest and deepest fjord in the world and see the wild places that you cannot go with the car.
Recommend for families and couples !

We really enjoyed our boat tour with Tor. He is from the area, and does a great job showing the sights of Balestrand and the fjord from the water in a very relaxed way. He explained the history of the area, pointed out many historic buildings, and showed us his fish traps. The fishing portion of the trip was minimal, and could easily be skipped, especially for adults.

Our family of 4 absolutely loved the Good morning Balestrand tour: We enjoyed many different aspects of Fjord life: a bit of history, a glimpse of the quiet nature and spectacular landscape, many fish and some other animals. Our kids were thrilled to actually catch some fish while angling. Tor Andre is a well-informed and very professional tour guide - we would always go on a fjord tour with him again!

An enjoyable few hours on the fjord with Tor. We saw Porpoise, Nowegion Sea Eagles and learnt so much about way of life here. We caught nine Whiting. Tor was so knowledgeable and understood perfectly how to engage our children aged 11 and 13. Thankyou for a fabulous afternoon and an enjoyable dinner!

Thank to Tor and his perfect knowledge of the Fjord, we were able to see a couple of Sea Eagles with their baby, to discover the history of the Fjord and to fish amazing fish... it's easy, relaxing. In addition, Tor has the perfect feel for kids's needs (8 and 12). Thank you for this great experience !

Kudos to Cap'n Tor! Not only was the angling experience memorable in itself (stunning Sognefjord scenery, saw a baby sea eagle, caught my first-ever fish...), the two-and-a-half hour tour also offered invaluable insight into Balestrand - and wider Norwegian - history and life.

A born-and-bred local (Balestrandee?!), Tor was not only happily forthcoming with knowledge but also a genuinely warm, friendly and enthusiastic host. If you're looking for a unique and authentic Fjord experience, don't hesitate to hit him up.

(Thanks to David at Kviknes Hotel for the recommendation.)
