    Åkerfallet consists of five buildings and a cabin. Our place is situated in beautifull sourondings with lots of mountains for hiking and fjords for fishing. It's 7 km to the nearest shop, and there is 1 km to a small lake for bathing. Our nature is just amazing among the Norwegian fjords, there are so much to see! We also enjoy nice talks with people- to get to know new people. Both of us work at Tingvoll Gard where NORSØK, national centre of expertise for the development of organic agriculture is situated, for those interested in organic agriculture.

    Beautifull litle cabin in the woods. The cabin is primitive, no electricity or water with an outdoor privy, just the way cabins ought to be. There is a gas stoove for cooking, but we would also eat some of the meals togheter. Our guests is allowed to use our bathroom for showers and such, and we also have a guestroom where internet can be used.

Apart from the beautiful nature you can find Tingvoll Økopark, Tingvoll museum and a nice small cafe, Drøpping, in the municipality center. A 15 minute drive from the center of Tingvoll you can find the world renown Tingvollost.
