It may sound funny, but many people don't quite realize that the fjords are fed by melting snow and ice. In fact, my Mother-In-Law relates a childhood story where she and her cousin were visiting Balestrand and thought it would be a nice idea to wash their hair in the fjord. They had quite a surprise!
Seriously, though, hypothermia can be a very real threat in such cold water. Use caution when around the fjord, especially if you're traveling with young children.
Our hotel's owner told us the rule she was told as a child: "If there's still snow on the mountains, don't go in the water." (I'm not even so sure it's such a good idea when the snow's melted, but that's just me...) When in doubt, ask at your hotel, or at the tourist office.
