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.

We stopped in to get tips on where to hike in the area. We not only purchased a great hiking map that we will pass on to friends coming to Norway, we got personal recommendations for several options in and around Balestrand.

Lots of information and maps with good opening times.Drinks of local apple/pear juices cheaper than Ciderhuset (where they are made) but less choice.

They were very helpful in booking a bike trip or anything else you want to do it into the small fjord town, they also set us up with a fishing trip in the fjords.

Not sure if this helps but there is an amazing ferry ride from Kaupanger, which is a short drive from Balestrand, to Flam. It doesn't run all year but is a stunning trip. This ferry does take vehicles.
