PICTURES from SIGDAL

The magnificent natural surroundings have attracted artists and inspired many well known works of art. Sigdal and Eggedal has two of the best preserved homes of artists from the Golden Age of Norwegian art, Theodor Kittetsen´s home, Lauvlia, and Christian Skredsvig´s home, Hagan.

Prestfoss is the administrative center. Sigdal has plenty to offer in summer as well as winter. The shifting mountain and forest terrain is ideal for long walks, and there are magnificent mountains waiting to be climbed.

The bare face of Andersnatten has proved irresistible to many a mountaineer. There are well marked paths running between cabins and "seter" or mountain dairy farms.

On warm summer days, the fjords, rivers and mountain lakes are full of bathers. Come evening, you can rent a boat, use your fishing permit and try your luck.
