Life by the fjords
Skaldegard invites small groups to learn about the local area’s natural environment by the fjord, history, agriculture and way of life, both past and present. Your visit will include a guided tour of the historic farm buildings in Skjerdal, as well as sampling local food, including goat’s cheese and salted and dried meats.
In autumn 2010, husband and wife Jon Skjerdal and An-Magritt Lindtner took over the derelict goat farm of Nigarden in Skjerdal village in Aurland municipality. The idea was to preserve the beautiful old farm buildings as monuments to a bygone era. They also wanted to share the village’s unique character and cultural history with guests and visitors from both near and far.
Skjerdal village is located around 6.5 km north along the fjord from the centre of Aurland, at an altitude of 210 metres. The road is narrow with sharp hairpin bends. Parking is unfortunately very limited so we would kindly ask you not to bring your own car.
