“That’s one of the strange things about trips like this. Where you get to be close to the land in a distant place, however briefly, you can feel that a new part of the world is familiar and close and knowable, as you feel it in your hands and under your feet or in the face as the wind blow and we drives into the scenery.. -But then, later when you look back, and it all seems mysterious and foreign over again. It’s that push and pull of wanting to belong and also to be blown away, that keeps me travelling into wild fjords. Always looking to what’s next..”- Capt.Tor
Learn more: This trip combines Balestrand Fjord Angling & Balestrand Fjord Trolling. 2 for 1. We see Balestrand’s famous red dragon villas from the seaside. I tell stories about some of the houses. Meet me as a local and see were i grow up next to St.Olaf Church and Kvikne’s Hotell.
Our next stop and do some angling for sandwhiting on the beutiful Esefjord scenery. My mother used to send me out fishing sandwitings for lunch. The are funny to catch and taste good.
“Some guests would like to sitt on the boat’s bow… they like to emrace the feeling of freedom as we drive further into the scenery. Fresh air. High mountains. Still Water and Mirror image” - Capt.Tor
On the way out to the next fjord, we explore a river delta. The water here is clear, while the water in the next fjord is is green due to sediments from glacier-rivers and plankton. We see picturesque Norwegian farms in beautiful cultural landscape. In the spring, the sheep graze all the way down to the water’s edge and the fruit trees have blossoms. Oystercatchers with their characteristic orange beak and feets, guard their nests and make life. Field flowers and seaweed.
Extra option: In April- May when the snowmelting its greatest, I can offer my guests a trip to Kvinnefossen. - a 120 meters higt waterfall (Video). This area is also known for it’s historical scaffolding fishing for salmon. Sognefjord’s tides flow hit land right here. One should be a little more robust getting to do this, because here can be harsh waves in this area. If you like waves, it’s just fun. In May, the fruit trees also flourish. Duration is then 30 minutes longer and total cost is nok 2700. Let me know..
- Then we go faster into amazing Fjærlandfjord. As we turn the next point, we pass a small readtop lighthouse. This place is called Veganeset. In the Viking Age, criminals were executed at this place. Heads were stunned to horror and warning.
We notice a growing glacier. Thats interesting. Setlements without road connection, waterfalls and fjord cabins. Local story’s..
We start trolling for trout, pollack, salmon, macrell or garfish along the cliffs in Fjærlandfjord. Our trip ends at a cabin surrounded by 2 rivers.
*“This place is called “Tråøyri” - When I was boy, my parents took us to trolling and we went on picnic to this place…“- Capt.Tor*
Fresh water comes down from the mountain sides. Some times we observe norwegian dear grassing. It’s Just like the white tail dear, but a little bigger. Then we cross the fjord and Menes Village on our way back to Balestrand marina.
“If you make these places “Yours”, this is not just a boat trip anymore. It’s got personality and it’s a little fun.. It makes you feel special…. It create memories and thoughts as we return back to Balastrand. From something common and practical and everyday down here in the fjords, to something unusual and worth telling stories about back home..” - Capt.Tor
