High up on the hillside with a panorama view over Hylsfjorden lies Li, almost 300 steep meters right up from the fjord.
There are 13 buildings at this farm, all dated to the 17- and 1800s, and all containing plentiful original objects. The placement of the buildings for various usage gives the farmyard a definite mediaeval charm. These buildings have all been built using traditional handicraft methods whose roots lie far back in time. The farmyard is one of those most worthy of protection in this part of the country and thus has national value. Norway’s Directorate for Cultural Heritage listed the farm in 1974.
The landscape surrounding Li is characteristic of western Norway with tiny fields, drystone fences and clearance cairns.
During opening hours our hosts welcome you here and serve you coffee and waffles.
Are you visiting when the museum is closed, please enter the area where you can enjoy your own sandwiches while also enjoying the view.
