From the early 19th century and until the second world war, this fjord community, called Indre Ofredal, was a busy hub for the local industries; the many rivers and waterfalls were excellent ground for windmills and saw mills, a testimony of Norway as a hydro power nation; the majestic birch forests provided quality wood to be sold to many parts of the country; white granite, to be used for inventory, could also be found in these areas. A fun fact is that at the Grand Hotel in Oslo you can find white granite from this very area.
Today the remains and evidence of this past life is everywhere, creating a very unique atmosphere. You can walk around the area and look at the old mills, buildings, that look more or less like they did back in the day. We offer guided tours and storytelling to give you a wholesome experience.
Driving to Indre Ofredal
The drive Indre Ofredal is a chapter in itself. By car drive via Øvre Årdal and through Seimsdalen Valley and finally through the Ofredals tunnel, the world’s steepest tunnel (15,5 %). The last leg takes you on a narrow road through the birch forest as you descend back down towards the fjord.
