    We live in a remote area, there are only a few other houses around us. You will experience genuine Lofoten farm life, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and wild nature. Our area is an important farmland and not many tourists come out of the E10 to where we are.

    There are many hikes to do around the area and you can easily chat with other farmers around. We make typical herb produce and you will be alle to Learn about the wild herbs in the mountains. We also do knitting weaving so you can Learn with us if you Are interested!

    What else ...

    We live in a remote area with no public transport directly by us. The main road where the bus comes is 4km away and you can borrow our bicycles to go around.

    We deliver cheese every now and then and we have visitors coming in and out so you can also catch a ride with any of those.

    There Are beautiful hikes to be done around and the viking museum is not far. We share diner together but we each have our private space.
