Fjordtønna is based on old traditions; until early in the 19th century, barrels of all sizes were the main containers for storing foods and other products. Coopering has been known in Norway for centuries. In such a fish-based economy, there were cooperages all along the coast and even in the hinterland they practiced the craft of making small and big barrels. Today there are very few coopers left and Fjordtønna represents an important tradition where they maintain the passion, the knowledge and skills of the craft.

Welcome to Seljord

Beautiful Seljord in Upper-Telemark is a treasure chest just waiting to be opened.

Did you know that “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” was the first written down by two Norwegians named Asbjørnsen and Moe? They travelled often to Anne Golid’s cabin in Seljord to hear her stories, which they included in their folk tale collections that are known around the world. The Reverend Magnus Brostrup Landstand, and Miss Olea Crøger hiked through the mountains and forests of Seljord collecting folk songs that we still hear today in Norwegian churches and in Norway’s thriving folk music movement.
