Embrace the traditional way of life in rural Norway at the enchanting Øvre-Eide Farm.

Enjoy a short scenic drive towards Lake Jordal in the idyllic countryside just outside Bergen. Arriving at Øvre-Eide Farm, you’ll receive a warm welcome from the family who are in their fifth generation of running the farm, which dates back to the 1500s.

Discover the fascinating stories that have unfolded here, including the imprisonment of Gjest Baardsen (‘Norway’s Robin Hood’), who was held in the cellar in the early 18th century. Meet the resident animals and gain an insight into typical farming methods. 

Round off your visit in the beautiful main building, where you’ll try delicious homemade Norwegian cakes with tea and coffee.
