Inderdalen Farm is a treasure chest for visitors who appreciate a farm holiday and the countryside heritage of Northern Norway. The owners have diligently restored their farm, as well as tools and other objects that have been used by previous generations through the centuries. What better way to honour this heritage?
If you time your visit right, you will arrive on one of the days when Inderdalen’s café and farm shop are open. You may be delighted to know that groups can book dining, a guided tour of the restored farm with stories from its colourful past, and a demonstration of baking kamkake, a traditional local bread. The hosts also invite you to spend the night in one of the houses to get a feel of the old ambiance, but in full comfort!
This centuries-old farm is still owned and operated by the same family, who is very mindful of their rich cultural heritage. In fact, Arild Inderdal is his family’s eighth generation at the farm since 1742. He and your other hosts have fascinating stories to share, highlighted by the heirloom objects they’ll show you. These stories and objects bring the past to life. In 2019, the Inderdal family received the Cultural Landscape Award for its impressive preservation work. To learn more, you can read The history of Inderdalen Farm (see link to the right).
In addition to Arild, the host family includes Oscar Inderdal, as well as Ann-Synnøve and Agdis Albertsen. You may also meet others who contribute to making Inderdalen Farm such a fascinating experience.
Inderdalen Farm is situated at the end of the road – and at the head of the DNT trail to the Okstindan mountains and Gråfjellhytta cabin. At the farm is a service facility with public showers and toilets. A mere 2.5 km walk will take you to a popular destination called Sjurfinnheimen. From Inderdalen Farm, hikers can also head for other attractive destinations, such as Murhåjen, which offers a magnificent view over Bryggfjelldalen valley and Tverrfjellet.
