Visit a Norwegian farm

Most children are fascinated by animals. At many farms in Norway you may get up close to the animals and pet and play with them.

The farms are open to the public in the summer season, often free of charge.

Even in Oslo some farms are open:

Nordre Lindeberg farm is open all year and has horses, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats. There is also a café which is open every day except Saturdays.

Bogstad Manor is open all year. In the summer you can see all the animals outside: Sheep, horses, cows, pigs, rabbits and hens.

Norwegian farms include everything from small mountain farms to large flatland enterprises. Even the smallest kind of farm will often take you as a guest if you ask. Why not stay overnight at a farm? Some mountain farms even hold courses where you can try your hand as an old-fashioned milkmaid.
