Life by the fjords

Skaldegard invites small groups to come and learn about the local area’s natural environment, history, agriculture and way of life, both past and present. Your visit will include a guided tour of the historic farm buildings, and some small tastes of local food, both goat cheese, salted and dried meat.

In autumn 2010, husband and wife Jon Skjerdal and An-Magritt Lindtner took over the derelict goat farm Nigarden, in the hamlet of Skjerdal in Aurland Municipality. The idea was to preserve the beautiful old farm buildings as monuments to a bygone era. We also wanted to share the hamlet’s unique character and cultural history with guests and visitors from far and wide.

The hamlet of Skjerdal lies around 6.5 km north along the fjord from the centre of Aurland, at an altitude of 210 metres. The road up is narrow with sharp hairpin bends. Parking is unfortunately very limited, so we kindly ask that you don’t bring your own car.
