In Framgarden we can give you an authentic experience of going back 300 years in time and experience a protected Sunnmore cluster of houses from the 1700s.
Ever since the 1800s has the intimate and somewhat secluded mountain and coastal villages in western Norway has been a playground for royalty, emperors, cultural elite and other nice people. Everyday life for the local farmers offered other pleasures and challenges: Framgarden in Stordalen can now stay as an "emperor", but in the historical and authentic surroundings of the local western farmer. We offer a journey back in time with delicious food and good comfort. The farm is located a stone's throw from Storelva which provides a good opportunity to get this year's salmon.
Stordal is situated midway between Alesund, Geiranger, Molde and the Trollstigen road and making it a perfect place to stay if you are going to explore the various tourist attractions in the area.
