Herding sheep to summer farm, Aurlandsdalen

Every spring, sheep all over Norway are happy to be let out of the winter barn and on to thick green grass outside. Do you want to join us?

(Available from 27th of May to the 10th of June)

If you want to connect with Norwegian culture and heritage, this is the adventure for you. After staying a few weeks close to the farm, it is time to go on to even greener grass up by the traditional summer farms. This is how Norwegians (and their sheep) have been cultivating the landscape for ages.

Our adventure starts in Vassbygdi, and making sure we have our woolen friends in front of us, we make our way up to Almen farm in the Aurlandsdalen valley. Herding the sheep, and having lunch along the trail, takes around 3 hours (depending on how well-behaved the sheep is off course).
