Balsfjorden is a magnificently beautiful, 50 km long fjord cutting inland from Kvaløya island and Tromsø city. The surrounding terrain is dominated by gentle slopes with woodland and cultivated fields, but the backdrop is that of tall, pointed and snowcapped mountains. Where rivers meet the fjord, large amounts of sediment have built up shallow waters and vast tidal flats over the years.
