Rallarrosa Cheese Farm

Your adrenalin will still be pumping when you arrive at Rallarrosa Cheese Farm at the end of the zipline. Spend some time at the farm sharing your experience and unwind with some great cheeses, snacks, light meals and drinks, while taking in the stunning scenery. We make traditional brown and white cheese from fresh, unpasteurised goat's milk. The goats that graze our summer pastures come from the Sogn School of Organic Agriculture and Horticulture and from Dalsbotten, a farm around 10 kilometres further down the valley. We are at the summer farm from mid-June until mid-September.

Ziplines are a longstanding tradition in the Flåm valley

The ziplines ('løypestreng') were primarily used to transport goods, timber, hay, milk barrels and even animals from mountain farms and rocky outcrops.

Some ziplines were motorized while others operated via gravity.

There are rumours that goatherds sent their bucks via ziplines when the autumn mating season was over as they were totally mischievous. Sometimes people also had to take the cableways.

…So, now it's your turn!
