Aalan Farms is operated by the Åland family, who supply Hurtigruten ships with teas and tasty organic cheeses all year round. It is our only local Hurtigruten food supplier that opens its doors to visiting ship guests during our cruises. Here, you see, smell, touch, and learn about real life on a farm in the far north of Norway. The Ålands show and tell us about food production, animal husbandry, daily work routines, and how they spend their leisure time. We also taste their many varieties of cheeses, herbs, and other products made from scratch. Be sure and buy something for a savory snack later. You also meet the farm's goats, dogs, cats, miniature pigs, ducks, chickens, and, if you're lucky, the free-range cow, Victoria. This tour is a down-to-earth experience that might inspire you to pack up and move to the country.
