About Skaldegard
WELCOME TO OUR FARM Come and visit an old farmstead that clings to the mountain-side and enjoys splendid views over the fjord and surrounding mountains. Skaldegard invites small groups to come and learn about the local area’s natural environment, history, agriculture and way of life, both past and present. Your visit will include a guided tour of the historic farm buildings. Inside the lovingly restored barn you get to try home-made lefse, a traditional Norwegian flatbread. Then we take you on a journey through Norwegian folklore to a world where trolls and huldra live. Welcome!
