Idyllically situated along the river Topdal is the historic Boen Gård (Manor), surrounded by park, tall deciduous trees and farmland.
A few kilometres inland of the rocky shores of Southern Norway lies the stately country house of Boen.
A classic park surrounds the beautiful main house of Boen Gård in Kristiansand, and guests are welcomed into large and bright rooms and lounges over two storeys. Contemporary furniture and art provide a distinctive setting for both private functions and business events.
The extensive parkland has been upgraded and the sheep kept on the property help keep the cultural landscape around the property and along the river in order.
Salmon and timber were the original purpose of Boen, and the salmon-rich Tovdalselva river flows through the property, offering an opportunity to combine events with a spot of exciting salmon fishing.
Try your hand at salmon fishing in historic surroundings
Salmon fishing at Boen has been described from the early 1500s and was the property of the king. On the behalf of the state, the king transferred the rights to the salmon fishing and the farm on a fixed term lease to some of his most prominent officials in return for the fish. The Hegermann family owned Boen for several generations. British lords leased the fishing rights from the family in the early 1900s and fairy-tale catches were recorded.
