Here you’ll be able to take in the traditional cod fishing in all its glory, with several boats heading out to sea from the harbor. The rorbus and accommodation in Ballstad are protected from the weather and ocean and has the majestic Skottind towering above wherever you go.
Down in the harbor, you’ll find several activities like kayaking, diving, and snorkeling, which takes you out to the small islands outside Ballstad. If you rather want to try out fishing, there are several boats heading out to sea for you to try your luck on.
The hike up to Skottind is an experience you’ll never forget, but can be a bit daunting for those scared of heights. If you’d rather stay down by the ocean, you’ll find several paths and trails alongside the mountain and on the islands.
