Welcome to Sivle Gard, where nature and culture go hand in hand.
At Stalheim, between high mountains and deep valleys, your hostess introduces you to Per Sivle’s kingdom. This is the area where the poet was inspired and spent his childhood years. Today this is a part of the distinctive fjord landscape of west Norway, which is included on Unesco’s World Heritage list.
At Sivle you can enjoy magnificent nature, spiced with stories, poems and songs. Here you can enjoy excellent home-made traditional food, and many of the raw materials are produced on the farm. The hostess at Sivle does everything to ensure that guests are given excellent and authentic experiences.
