  • Limited Accessibility

Immerse yourself in the local culture by tasting a Norwegian-style pancake, watching candle makers ply their craft, and passing by Europe’s largest boulder field.


After departing from the pier, you will settle in and enjoy a leisurely drive inland, passing through one picturesque village after another on the way to the fertile Dirdal Valley. Upon reaching the village of Byrkjedalstunet, you will stop in a former cheese factory that has been converted into a restaurant and workshop for candle makers.


As an introduction to the local cuisine, you will be served a hot beverage and a Norwegian lapper, a flat pancake of sorts that is typically topped with berry jam and sour cream. Unlike American pancakes, these traditional griddlecakes are typically eaten later in the day rather than for breakfast.


After snacking on the lapper, you will enter the chandlery and watch the candle makers at work. More than 200 different kinds of candles are produced here, usually through an old-fashioned hand-dipping technique or by using molds. You will also have time to browse the gift shop for candles and woolens. You may even spot a few goats around the property, whose ancestors supplied milk for the cheese that was once produced here.


While returning to the pier, you will pass the Gloppedalsuren Boulder Field, the result of an earthquake that brought down the sides of two mountains in an avalanche. It’s an amazing sight, as some of the boulders are larger than houses.


Need to Know:

Note: This tour is mostly panoramic and includes nearly 4 hours of travel on the coach. There will be approximately 45 minutes of easy walking/standing at the stop in Byrkjedalstunet.
