Experience the local food along the Sognefjord

Along the Sognefjord you can taste both local, short-distance and traditional food.

You can visit companies that are an experience in themselves, or find a company where you can sleep peacefully and well, and have a meal that gives you a local and memorable experience.

In the summer you can join cider tasting at the Cider House in Balestrand and learn how they distill brandy and make sparkling cider using the traditional method. Learn how to make small dishes/snacks and enjoy the tastes afterwards with a cidertray. Chef Tuba Ardic will teach you how we combine Norwegian local products with Mediterranean food culture.

Fjærland Fjordstove Hotel is a beautiful white tree hotel down by the Fjærlandsfjord. For us, food is much more than eating. It is the whole process, from the history of the land, to the farmers, to how it is grown, where it comes from, when it is available, and the creativity involved in turning valuable ingredients into a meal. Staying true to the essence of Nordic Cuisine, we do our best to make the most of what we have, which is access to an incredible variety of local produce. From the local fish, deer, beef, lamb, honey, potatoes, dairy and our own herb garden, along with seasonal produce that we get from further afield, we aim to create delicate, simple and wholesome food. All to be enjoy with our selection of French wines, locally crafted beer, and ciders.

At Brævasshytta in Fjærland you can enjoy local food while enjoying the view of Bøyabreen as the nearest neighbor. If you are lucky, you can experience calving of the glacier. At Brævasshytta they serve homemade cakes and Norwegian traditional dinner.
