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.
