The Cider House in Balestrand (Ciderhuset) is a family run micro cidery. We are situated in an organic orchard with a range of different fruits by the Sognefjord. We produce still cider, sparkling cider, fruit wines and brandy.
You will be guided by one of the family members through the process of growing and fermenting fruit for cider or brandy. You will get samples of cider from the cider tanks or the kegs. You will also learn about how we treat the cider and the bottles to make sparkling cider the traditional “champaign” way.
The interpretation program lasts approx. 30 min. and includes 5 samples of cider. For guests under 18, the ciders are replaced by alcohol-free fruit drinks.
