MEET THE NETWORK
Nature-based sustainable tourism network. JOY OF NATURE
A walk in the forest or along the river, fishing in a pond or hiking in the mountains. There are small spaces in urban everyday life that provide new energy and air around the thoughts. Natur Norway facilitates such experiences. We call it the joy of nature!
Nature-based visitor centres, each deal with a different nature theme located in scenic surroundings with opportunities for activities in nature. Play and learn is a consistent key idea for us.
In order to meet the wishes of our guests for accommodation, we have developed a number of options. For many, the most exciting are perhaps those that lie outside in nature. Check out our fantastic micro-houses, glamping offers or the "Globe" at Viltgården.
Our aim is to bring people out into nature to experience what it has to offer. Our wildlife is a little out of the ordinary. In addition to chickens, cats, dogs, peacocks and rabbits, we have moose and wild boar. For many, it is perhaps exciting enough to look into the hens to find eggs for breakfast?
There are well-arranged hiking areas on the farm, and perhaps you want to sleep under the open sky? Although we live outside in nature, it is not far from other good activity offers. It is just over a quarter of an hour to the center of Evje with a shopping centre, restaurants and lots of shops.

WILD SALMON CENTER
Nasjonalt Villakssenter - Kvåsfossen is a national salmon centre with focus on the wild salmon and the river. The idea behind the salmon stairs is that the salmon must swim up the river to lay their eggs, and in the past a large stone was blocking the entrance.
Several thousand-year-old petroglyphs from the Stone Age show that our ancestors caught and ate salmon. Today, over a hundred thousand salmon lovers fish for salmon in one of our 400 small and large salmon rivers.
If you want to learn more about wild salmon, you've come to the right place. We have arranged for a holistic experience both above and below water. Everything we know about salmon we have learned from fishermen and scientists.
We can't wait to tell you the wonderful story of the wild salmon.
An important natural resource!
