The farm is called Tokvam, and so is the neighbouring farm. Which is why we call ourselves 29/2 Aurland, after the farm’s land and title number. This area has been settled since the Viking Age, and there are several old burial mounds in Aurlandsvangen village, which, in its day, was the main seat of King Sverre’s maternal line. The buildings on the farm are not that old, of course, but the building we call ‘the fish house’ is one of the oldest buildings in Aurland, dating from the early 18th century.
The main ‘highway’ between Western and Eastern Norway ran past here. For centuries, cattle and horses were driven up the Aurlandsdalen valley on their way to the horse and cattle markets in Eastern Norway. The initials of old drovers heading east are carved into the old timber walls of the ‘fish house’.
Nowadays, we welcome guests from all the world to the farm.
The Riverside Farm Lodge
The farm has provided accommodation for anglers from Norway and abroad for several generations. The furnishing of each of the rooms in the fish house is therefore inspired by guests with close links to the Aurlandselva river.
