Hi, yes Balestrand is very small and everything is walkable. The dock might be a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Breakfast is included, though it's just pancakes, hard boiled eggs, toast and some meats and cheeses. But totally enough to fill up on and enjoy! You won't need a car to enjoy Balestrand and the surrounding area. Have fun!
