During the summer and early fall seasons, we host weekly public programs focused on traditional northern craft. This year we're offering two mini-courses (bread baking and timber framing), and multiple opportunities to  watch and learn.

Additionally, there's a scavenger hunt, daily sailing on our schooner Hjørdis, fjord horse driving, and more!
