  • Description


    Our family farm is located in a valley surrounded by the Sunnmøre alps, the view is amazing with overhanging glaciers and steep mountains. With the well known powder paradise Stranda skiresort and more lokal Fjellsetra skiarena within 15 minutes. Plenty of hikes and more advanced mountaineering trips right outside the doorstep.

    We are a family of five, Vibeke, Fredrik, Heine 3, Lerke 12 and Birk 13. Pluss Mio the greenland - sleddog, Lilja the working fjordhorse, two shetland ponies and two cats. We live on a a family farm with freerange pigs, ducks, chickens and a vegetable garden.

    We bought the farm 3 years ago and are fixing the over 100 year old buildings so that they will keep us warm and last for another hundred years.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A salmon river is running through our land, so some parts of the year its possible to go fishing for wild salmon. There are plenty of trails and hikes and the west coast fjords are very close. The jugend architecture city Aalesund are only 40minutes away and the surrounding area has a lot of viking history.
    We have a marketgarden with allkinds of vegetables and we aim for diversity and permaculture design.
