A treat for the senses
A comfortable, hour-long boat ride through the striking scenery of the fjords takes you to this gem of an island, Nord-Hidle, which just 23 people call home. At the edge of the pier awaits the Norda-Hidle farm, a charming setting for a gathering of friends, family or groups who want to enjoy a memorable meal and time together. The farm kitchen prides itself on making the best of local raw materials, including produce from its own farm, world-class seafood from the nearby fjords and meat from the island’s farms. How about some nettle soup with egg, or roast moose?
The tiny island in the Sjernarøy group near Stavanger offers much more than local food with an exotic touch. Humans first settled here some 11,000 years ago, and your hosts will be delighted to include a guided tour through that long history as part of your visit. Other activities include ‘The Senses Quiz” which challenges each team’s senses of sight, smell, taste and touch. The farm can host groups of six to 60, and has everything needed to make your event – from weddings to conferences – a success. Accommodations for up to nine. Norwegian, English and German spoken.
Delve into history, tradition and exciting food.
"Cut out for hiking"
“Nord-Hilde is cut out for hiking, and it is possible to order a guiding through the landscape and cultural history where erotic cults with phallus stones were central ingredients in the past.” – Sailing the Fjords blog.
