Agritourism is hot, and it's not hard to see why. What better place to unwind and taste incredible fresh produce than at an authentic, cosy farm? All over Norway, you can visit welcoming farms, either as a fun family day trip or as a relaxing overnight stay.

A relaxing stay

Farm stays in Norway offer a special kind of luxury. It's all about going back to the roots, embracing simple living, and lots of kos.

Wake up in quiet surroundings, with only the peaceful sounds of animals grazing nearby. In the dining room, breakfast is served with fresh vegetables, freshly baked bread and dairy products from the farm. Afterwards, you can explore the lush area, or help out with chores on the farm, which some farms offer as part of the experience.

A farm stay can also be a part of a culinary journey. After all, you are right where incredible ingredients are grown and harvested. Eat your way from farm to farm, or try the many farm shop specialities.

There are also many fun farm activities for families with children.

Find your perfect farm holiday:

Rural luxury

Some of Norway's traditional farms and manor houses have kept their original style intact, and opened their doors to visitors who are looking for a quiet holiday in good company.

At these farms, you'll often find tradition and history combined with modern comforts (and tasty meals, of course). In other words, the perfect recipe for a romantic getaway.

Summer pasture farms

Norwegian farmers have long traditions of herding their livestock up the mountains to graze in summer. A milkmaid would stay in a small cabin all summer, watching over the flock. These summer pasture farms are called seterin Norwegian and are located in scenic, rural surroundings in the mountains and valleys.

Some summer pasture farms offer accommodation from June to late August, but even more are open for daily visitors.

Seter cafés often serve traditional, homemade treats like waffles, brown cheese and sour cream porridge. Why not stop by for lunch when you're hiking in the mountains?

Farm visits

For those looking for activities during the day, these farms will keep your family entertained!

Let the kids run around freely, pet the adorable animals, and take part in the farm chores. Feed the rabbits, ride a pony or get a lift with a tractor!

A farm to farm adventure

Do you want a little bit of everything? Then a round trip from one farm experience to another might be the perfect choice for you.

The countryside by Mjøsa, Norway's biggest lake, in Eastern Norway is packed with treats and welcoming farms, and it's perfect for a countryside escape. The landscape in this area is pretty flat, which makes it easy to get around by bike. Visit historic gardens, stay at a manor house, and sample local treats at the cosy farm shops.

The Golden Road detour on the idyllic Inderøy peninsula in Trøndelag is the perfect tour for foodies. Travel between farm shops, breweries, bakeries, cafés and more, either by bike or car.

The agricultural paradise of Jæren in the Stavanger region is great for anyone who wants to combine farm visits with top restaurants, art experiences, and outdoor fun on incredible beaches.
