We went here once or twice for some information about walks and about buses etc and found the young man here most helpful and prepared to take time with us. We booked a trip here to the view point at Utsikten which was very good.

Balestrand is such a pretty town - with incredible houses and fruit orchards. Small, easily covered by foot with stunning views. The tourist office is helpful with any questions you would have, although the area is pretty self explanatory.
