    Lofoten is a beautiful area with a lot to offer. Many come here just to experience the area and see the landscape. Our farm is the perfect place to experience the Nothern Lights as its one of the absolute best places in the world to see it. In summer we have midnight sun and 24 hours of day light. Its populare to ski, fish, hike and more here in Winter and in summer its all kinds of activities as hiking, kayaking, climbing, fishing, surfing and more.. and ofc riding. Its also a golf course where you cant try golf just next to the farm. They also need help and is managed by the same manager as the farm.
