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.)

Hii Becky :) -and thank you so much for your" MemorableFishingExperience,and MuchmoreBesidesREVIEW " on a normal "superFantasticDayInBalestrand". - One moment you have breakfast at Kviknes Hotell (with butler Daivid sliding around with coffee pots and such) to a fantastic view out Window ...and the next moment you ARE the view itself ...and look at the breakfast guests behind the Window ... it's a little weird to think about.. Anyway :) - Thank you so much for an exciting day with you 2 London(ers) and so incredibly fun to be there when YOU got your first fish .. and the mackerell .. And incredibly fun with the eagle on the pier ... Greetings from Balestrand, "TheUniqueAndAuthenticFjordExperiencedCapt.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 !

Hi I8005BRkamilak :9 -Thank you for your worldly perspective and feedback. The legendary Sognefjord hides many secrets. Finding historical settings and being able to put them in a contemporary context is an art. So good that you got answers to the questions you were looking for. One of many exciting days and voyages of discovery in Balestrand :)

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!

Great experience! Captain Tor knows a whole lot about the local history and gave us an insight into both the daily life and bigger events in Balestrand the last 100 years or so. Really interesting and a lot to both learn and see. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous and Tor took us fishing at the best spots, which was a blast. It was pretty cold when we were there, but he has gear and clothes to keep you warm and comfortable. Great experience and I would recommend this to everyone. Thank you, Tor!
