nl-signature

This tour will give you an insight into the life of a Norwegian family that has been in the farming business for generations.

The farm itself, however, is a state-of-the-art construction built in 2015, with the goal of maximizing animal well-being and minimizing the impact on nature, by reducing waste and energy usage. The unique building with its round shape gives the farmers the possibility for close up interactions with the animals, like petting, feeding and health checks.

You will learn about the life of the bulls, what it takes to keep them happy and healthy, and even how they automatically send information about their unborn calves to the farmer’s phones using SMS. You’ll be surprised how modern farming can be!

After visiting the farm area you will be greeted in the family’s house for a light lunch, including a selection of Black Angus meat, mashed potatoes and vegetables. You will be served homemade bread, local beer or wine, coffee or tea and ice cream dessert, while overlooking a nearby fjord through the panoramic window in the farmer’s living room.

Important Things to Note

Frequently Asked Questions

general

  1. We do go to Finland or Sweden if the conditions are better there. Within the Schengen area, it is not necessary to clear formalities when crossing borders as the Schengen agreement allows us to cross borders within Europe without a passport. However, we would still encourage bringing along your passports on the chases as the border control in Finland may on very rare occasions request to check our passports and it would be safer simply to bring it along.

  2. It is not necessary to print anything for your trips with us. We have your details and have already passed them to our partners (for various day trips). Our partners and tour guides will have your details on their lists when picking you up, and all you need to do is check that your details are correct and you’re joining the correct company.

  3. We use Norwegian kroner (NOK) here. Most shops, restaurants and even taxis here take credit card, so if you bring a little less cash, it shouldn't be a problem too as long as you have a working credit card.

  4. We can’t tell you precisely what and how much to wear, since everybody feels the cold differently. While we had guests in February posing for pictures wearing only a t-shirt (before getting back into their winter gear, of course) others are more sensitive and need the warmest equipment possible to feel comfortable. Generally we recommend wearing woolen underwear, ideally made of merino wool. If you are especially sensitive to the cold and visit us during one of the colder months, you should consider wearing several layers. Besides that woolen socks, one or several layers, are a must-have, just like a hat and gloves or mittens. Mittens keep your fingers warmer than gloves. If you’re a photographer you can wear a thin pair of gloves as a base layer and mittens on top of that, which you can then easily take off once you need to adjust your camera, without getting your fingers too cold. Please don’t wear cotton, which gets moist and will make you freeze. On top of your woolen layers you should wear warm pants and a jacket that are comfortable enough to wear while exploring the city. We provide warm winter suits on our Northern Lights chases. You would take off thick layers of clothes before wearing the suits, so please don’t overdress. Also, please remember that our cars are warm and a long part of each chase may be spent driving, therefore you should always have the possibility to take something off to avoid sweating.
