The factory also houses a unique outlet, where you will not only find the entire product range, but where you can also wander through past times and experience the atmosphere of the factory both then and now. In addition, there are products from other local food producers. The store also has a small café where you can get apple waffles, ice cream and coffee. Here are many good gift ideas in all price ranges and exciting accessories and interior items.

At most there was a total of approx. 100 men at the nickel plant, which was in operation over a 10-year period. Here the exciting history of the mine and the environment that arose around it is conveyed. This is the place where most bats hibernate in Norway, and where the country's largest deposit of the rare rock type "kulenorite" has been found.
