Herdalssetra

Overview
Details

The beautiful Herdalssetra summer farm lies 520 metres above sea level up from the village of Norddal and is within the UNESCO World Heritage area.

The drive up the toll road (10 km) is steep and fascinating with its many waterfalls, ending at Herdalsvatnet, which stretches about 2 kilometres into the valley.

The road runs along the lake Herdalsvatnet, and at the end of the path grassy meadows spread out over the wide valley floor. At the end of these meadows lies the unique Herdalssetra, which forms an intimate group of more than 30 old farmhouses. There are also a number of ruins from old farms and farmhouses. Traces of settlement from as far back as the early Middle Ages and even older constructions for hunting reindeer have been found in Herdal. The Geological Nature Reserve Kallskaret is situated about 2 hours hike from the farm. 

This is one of the largest community alpine farm centres for goat farming in Norway, and there is an unbroken tradition of alpine farming here stretching back in time more than 300 years.  There are also cows, sheep and fjord horses on the farm. Thus children can find a genuine playground here. Here you can try goats cheese and goats milk caramel, made in the traditional manner. Walking amongst the old buildings and breathing the fresh mountain air and the scent of grazing farm animals gives you peace of mind difficult to find elsewhere.

Behind the farm soars mount Hereggja (1557 masl), and the landscape invites you to mountain hikes and fishing expeditions. You can stay in a farmhouse and buy a fishing license for rivers and lakes. Herdalssetra also has its own, simple farmhouse café, where you can try traditional Norwegian sour cream porridge with cured meats and other traditional food  during the summer season.

Season: June - September

Guided tours included tasting and/or lunch. For groups arrangements and prices on request.
