    Take the fast ferry (4 hours) from Bergen and slow down and enjoy the glorious surroundings. Be prepared to relax and enjoy the quiet. We ate our meals and enjoyed cocktails at the Kviknes Hotel. We slept at the Balestrand Hotel and enjoyed the quiet.

    Arriving by ferry drops you at the heart of the town.

    Arriving by ferry drops you at the heart of the town. Walking south along Kong Beles Veg for about 2 kilometers affords beautiful views of St. Olaf's church, the picturesque valley, the beach, the hills, and several "Swiss-style" charming old houses. A must-see is Balestrand's little beach and the deep, clear pools beside it where I sat for ages soaking up the sound of the water's tranquil lapping on the rocks and watching fish zip around way below the surface of the crystal-clear water. I even caught people swimming and sunning themselves at midday in late September! There were not many dining options post-tourist-season, but I had the soup at the chocolatery called Holmen within the main triangle of town, and though I found it overpriced (compared to prices in Bergen), it was delicious.

    Our family absolutely loved staying at Frydenlund near Balestrand. Everything in the property's information was accurate. Great hosts who helped us when we had some questions, Views are wonderful and several areas in which to relax and enjoy them. Check-in was easy as there was a door code. While we would love to return to this part of Norway we would only do so if we could also stay at Frydenlund.

    Beautiful location and friendly small town.

    Beautiful location and friendly small town. Unfortunately it rained quite heavy in September 2019 when we were there so that we couldn't do much biking and hiking as we had anticipated, but there was still enough to do to keep us occupied the day and a half that we spent there. Dinner with a piano concert in the Kviknes Hotel was particularly memorable.

    Cute town with a lot packed into a small place.

    Cute town with a lot packed into a small place. Walking around town is easy. There are two grocery stores and plenty of restaurants. We went to an English Mass at St Olaf's Church too. If we had arrived earlier in the day we might have had time to fish from the shores of the fjord.

    The hotel is located in a great area of Balestrand, right off the water, next to a Stave style church, and walking distance to downtown. The room itself is outdated but the common areas of the house that you see in the ads is very comfortable with several areas to relax in. Breakfast had a good variety of foods and you eat in a dining room with a view of the water. The owner is very friendly and after I told him I was looking to see something specific while in Norway he went out of his way to make it happen which I really appreciated.

    The views from the rooms (we were in the large non-historic addition) were spectacular - of course it would be nearly impossible to have non-spectacular views in Balestrand. The common rooms were classic old hotel spaces - large, grand, and with magnificent views! The breakfast buffet was excellent. The art gallery - both the space (with the enormous, thick slabs of granite on the walls) and the exhibit (photos by Wilhelm Dreesen) were remarkable! Highly recommended!

    Great place about a 5-10 minute walk from the ferry. Views from the room over the fjord are excellent. Rooms are very basic, but clean and comfortable. Coffee & pastries included for breakfast or a discount coupon for the restaurant at a nearby hotel. Access to a fabulous sauna below the hotel that has access to the water and beautiful views (you have to book and pay for this, but it was the highlight of our visit!).

    We loved the location of the appartment at the harbor in Balestrand with a great view on Fjord and mountains. It was convenient for my parents that the appartment had a bedroom and a bathroom on the 1st floor so that they did not have to climb the stairs. Rhe rooms were spacious and the bathroom was clean and comfortable. It was also convenient that a supermarket was just around the corner.
