ALT 2: The farm, cotters holding and mountain farm

Before ca. 1950, when the tractor became commonplace on the farm, the work in the steep fields was heavy and hard. In the summer, the women had help at home and could travel up in the mountains with the cattle – to the rich mountain pastures, many of which are still used today. Join us for a walk around the farm, the cotters holding and the mountain farm in the open-air museum. Languages: Norwegian/English. 

During these TWO HOURS you will join the guided tour through the farm, cotters holding and mountain farm in the museum. The guides will tell you about the history of at the life and work in Valdres, and you will get the possibility to taste some traditional food. 

Price per person in 2020: NOK 200 (over 15 persons). Price per group: Minimum NOK 3000. Outside Summer Season live folk music and dance can be ordered for NOK 2000.
