For an exclusive experience in the most secluded arm of the Sognefjord, we recommend our Finnabotn Tour. Many are also interested in seeing the UNESCO World Heritage Site Nærøyfjord.
If you’d like to combine your RIB tour with land-based activities, we recommend combining a tour of the Fjærlandsfjord with lunch at Fjærland fjordstove. Or combine a tour of the Nærøyfjord with a visit to Vikingvalley or the a guided tour of the village Undredal.
For the especially curious, we offer a trip to the village Ortnevik, including to a homemade Stave Church, chainsaw art park, and land-based halibut farm. Then we swing by our favorite spot, Finnabotn, just for good measure. If you’re short on time, we recommend the private version of our popular Fjord Sightseeing Tour.
We have two boats, each with space for 12 guests. For groups requiring two boats, we give a 10% discount on the second boat. For large groups we can arrange even more boats—just let us know in advance.
Note that we can pick up and drop off in locations other than Balestrand as well, for example: Vik, Fjærland, Sogndal, and Flåm.
We also offer a no-frills transport service, without scenic stops or detours. We can take you to or pick you up from most locations on the Sognefjord. To Vik, Fjærland, Sogndal, and Flåm we offer quick online booking. For other destinations, just let us know.
Our private tours run all year round, but during the coldest part of the winter, from November to April, it can be uncomfortable to be on trips longer than two hours. That said, one of our favorite RIB boat memories was in mid-December in the Arnafjord, flying together above a glassy fjord through heavy snowfall.
