Join in for sheep  search with Urdi farm, 8th-9th of September,2018

During summer, our sheep roam freely in the nearby highland area, but during winter they live in the barn at Urdi Farm

Join in on the annual “Gathering of the sheep” at Urdi farm. We are happy to announce that  you now can be a part of this yearly tradition; If you enjoy the outdoors, walking off-the-path or would like a time-out from the stresses of everyday life, this is the event for you.

We meet in Åraksbø, and drive to the mountains in Årdalen. This trip lasts for 2 days, were we will walk in the wilderness, following tracks and listenings for the bells of the sheep. There will probably a bit of running, so you should be ready for a work out if you sign up for this event 🙂

We will gather the sheep we find in a pen, where they will be loaded on a carrier for transportation to our farm. Your trip continues up to our cabin or a lavo at Sandvatn, where you will spend the night. Well arrived, your guide will prepare and serve you dinner and beverages. The food is based on local, ecological raw goods from wild game; like moose, reindeer or maybe even sheep. On sunday you return to Åraksbø on your own, the path back down to your car is very well marked with blue ribbons. If you wish so, you might be able to say goodbye to the sheep before you go.
