Since time immemorial, many farmers have taken their cattle to graze on small alpine pastures high up in the mountains during the summer. In the past, the dairymaids stayed in these small traditional huts for this time to watch over the herd. Today, many farms offer families the opportunity to spend the night right there during the summer months. Enjoy the fresh mountain air in this picturesque landscape while listening to the tinkling bells of the goats that complete the idyll. Many farms also offer freshly churned butter, cheese, sour cream and goat's milk sweets from their own production.
Many farms in Norway also house alpacas and lamas, as they use the warm wool to produce knitwear. Many offer the opportunity to take the animals out for walks - a highlight for younger guests!
