There will be a MINIMUM of one llama available for every two people on the walk when cruise ships are here, the first tour starts approx. 2 hours after the ship docks, subsequent tours at 2 hour intervals throughout the day. Advance booking is advised on cruise days due to limited capacity and the popularity of the llama walk.

This guided walk starts at the trailhead/car park Hødnevollen which is located at the end of the road in the Mørkrid valley (transport can be organized from Skjolden). Follow the Mørkrid river upstream as far as our farm cabin at Liane, where a picnic lunch and refreshments will be provided. You will have good time to relax and explore the area before returning to the trailhead.
The scenery in this area is beautiful and a very special experience. You will pass small lakes and waterfalls along the way and be accompanied by our pack llamas who will carry your bags and lunch for you. Although there is some uphill walking (Liane is 480 metres above sea level), the trail is good and the llamas set a gentle walking pace. Walking time about 2.5 hours in each direction. Tour subject to minimum of two people booking, maximum 10 persons/4 llamas.

Price; This tour is currently under developement and we hope to be able to organise a limited number of days during 2023.
There will also be the opportunity to accompany us on our daily inspection round when we check all the areas where we have sheep and llamas grazing. Spring and early summer this can be three or four different locations around Skjolden. From mid June we also check up on the sheep at least once every week on the upland grazing, this involves a lot of walking, but some fantastic scenery.
We will be organising llama walks and/or short farm visits on most of the days that ships are visiting Skjolden this year. We are currently still in the process of planning itinaries for "cruise days" and will publish details for each individual day as soon as we have them finalised.
Please note that on certain dates, the tours are sold as part of the official tour program and only bookable via the cruise company.
