Balestrand fjord adventures is based in Balestrand and was started by me, Lars Arne Målsnes in 2009 under the name Målsnes fjordopplevingar. Our boats are a Tornado HighPerfomance 9,5 and a Humber offshore, both with 2*300 hp Yamaha engines. The boats are designed to give you a comfortable ride, even in rough sea.
Balestrand fjord adventures offers you the best way of exploring the Sognefjord from our sightseeing trips. We also aim to give our costumers as good experiance of the fjord as possible. Therefore we set safety highly and safety instructions will be given before the trip starts. You will also be given life wests and souts that has floting elements and keep you dry and warm. We also try to costumize the trip to each individuals wishes about speed route and stops on the way for photos.

Balestrand fjord sightseeing
The tour starts at the harbour inmmvis one of the most painted wievs in Europe.
Then we go to the mighty Kvinafossen, a waterfall that falls 120 meters straight down. Here we stop and take time to enjoy the sights and to take photograps.
From here the trip goes to Vangsnes with a great view of the Fridtjov statue and then tonwards to the island of Kvamsøy. This is a small island on a shallow bay -it is said that it was common to stop here to wait for the weather to change. It was also a trading post. The island is also thought to be the smallest in the world with a church. More about the church here.
