Welcome to our farm
Come and visit an old farmstead that clings to the mountain-side and enjoys splendid views over the fjord and surrounding mountains. 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 goatcheese and salted and dried meat. Inside the lovingly restored barn you get to try home-made lefse, a traditional Norwegian flatbread. Then we take you on a journey through Norwegian folklore to a world where trolls and huldra live. Welcome!
Group size: 6 - 16 pax. (if larger or smaller groups, please contact me by mail)
Time: May - September, or by agreement
Length of visit: app. 2 ½ hours

The whole guided tour and story-telling session is done in English.
In autumn 2010, husband and wife Jon Skjerdal and An-Magritt Lindtner took over the disused goat farm Nigarden, in the hamlet of Skjerdal in Aurland Municipality. Our idea was to preserve the beautiful old farm buildings as monuments to a bygone era. We have already made a great start! We also wanted to share the hamlet’s unique character and cultural history with guests and visitors from far and wide. That’s why, in the summer of 2017, we created Skaldegard. The beautiful farm will now be a place for enjoyment, relaxation, wonder, learning, story-telling and guided tours – all against the backdrop of the dramatic scenery of Sogn. Come and visit us!
Where to find us
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 and windy. Parking is unfortunately very limited, so we kindly ask that you don’t bring your own car (unless we have an agreement).
If you book a guided tour at our place, you may very well take a taxi up to the farm.
We look forward to seeing you.
