Such a phenomenon can lead to weather that is often wild, with massive waves smashing onto the shoreline as a result. But when the storms pass, you can see all sorts of wildlife in the waters, including killer whales and dolphins. And on a clear day, you can apparently look out to sea for 20 miles.
Plus, the land around Båly is stunning. Rivers flow through the area, which along with the lakes offer opportunities for fishing and rafting when it’s warm. In the winter months, meanwhile, there’s plenty of snow to enjoy trekking across on skis. And if you choose to venture to the nearest town of Kristiansand, you’ll find a center of culture with its own opera house.
That said, Båly may seem a strange place to put a restaurant – especially given the lack of people in the area. But that’s precisely what the Ubostad brothers did, as they realized that the picturesque charms of the area were able to draw tourists during the summer. The location would need something special, though, to get people to visit year round.
