Today, you’ll have the opportunity to experience life on a farm in Norway’s Far North. Aalan Farm is a herb and cheese farm in Lauvdalen, Lofoten run by husband and wife Knut and Tove Åland with some help from their children.

The farm supplies our ships with quality tea and award-winning cheeses throughout the year. This farm is one of our only local food suppliers that you can visit during the cruise. Come along and thank them in person for the delicious cheeses you’ve had on the ship!

At Aalan, you’ll learn all about the reality of farm life. You’ll have the chance to taste cheeses, herbs, and other products that they make from scratch. You can also meet the farm’s goats, dogs, cats, miniature pigs, ducks, and chickens. If you’re lucky, their free-range cow Victoria might also make an appearance.
