We booked the morning tour to Naeroyfjord. This was one of the things I think I'll remember till I don't remember anything. The ride itself is great fun. And the Naeroyfjord is truly spectacular. In cold and/or rainy weather I think this could be rugged....More

Rib boat ride was a fun way to see the fjord. It was a beautiful, sunny day. The suits they provided kept us quite warm and dry. We loved the bumps! A couple of older guests said the bumps were uncomfortable for them. My husband...More

This speedy rib-boat tour is fun! Lars, the guy behind Balestrand Fjord Adventures, makes it an unforgettable experience. He knows everything about the fjords, and the history of this beautiful spot of land as he grew up and nowadays even runs his own farm there....More

The operators run a gold show. We enjoyed our day trip to the glacier. Well worth the money. Great views, wonderful journey. The glacier is ok, but the journey was worth the effort.

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
