Welcome to Haukali 33/3 in Ryfylke
We offer our guests a simple, historical and authentic, experience holiday, «Slow life». By travelling back to 1850 we want you to experience the “old” sense of time. Everyday life in 1850 was a lot of hard work – but it was also beautiful in many ways – and calming for body and mind. My ancestors lived here in Haukali, in what was called a “husmannshus” in Norwegian (translated to “Smallholder’s cottage”).The same type of house and size as we have now restored and offer to our guests. In Haukali you will be surrounded by untouched nature and experience a unique lifestyle. We believe the atmosphere here will be a soothing relief for you.
We want to tell you some of the stories we heard from my Grandfather, who lived to be 97 years old. He spent much of his life in Haukalia as a sheep farmer. We have learned a lot from my Grandfather and his stories. I believe that knowing the stories of our past is essential for creating our future. Borrow clothes likes 1850, take photo of yourself for good memories from #Haukali333
If you wish, we can prepare stores of food and drinks in the Husmannshus upon your arrival. You can also order your meals; we offer a simple, but tasty local breakfast, and you can choose between 3 different dinner menus. More details and prices are available by email request. Or you can prepare your own meals; ingredients and recipes for making homemade bread are in the house and included in the price.
If you are lucky, you can catch your own dinner in the lake.
