Den Gyldne Omvei


During the Summer, we decided to spend a few days at the family Summer cabin with friends. To get to the cabin, we have to traverse an area marked as Den Gyldne Omvei, The Golden Route, where farmers sell their produce, restaurants cook with local and ecological ingredients, and where arts and crafts can be bought from the area. There is a sculpture park there too, but I have to admit that I have never been there…


It is a very scenic and rural area and they are working to make this area more attractive to tourists as well as more sustainable. This time we drove Den Gyldne Omvei on a Sunday, so we didn’t make any stops to buy from the locals. Just a stop to enjoy the view and on towards the cabin!

For those that want to check out routes to local products in Norway, follow the signs with a golden rooster and you will surely happen upon something nice.
