Fjord Farms
Despite the precipitous cliffs that line the Geirangerfjord, a few small farms cling to the land. Some have been here since the Middle Ages, but the harsh conditions have left most abandoned today. However, a few farms have survived as tourist attractions, to be reached by intrepid hikers willing to keep an eye out for rock slides. A handful of farms are still in operation, their buildings topped with traditional turf roofs—the Norwegian version of insulation. If you look carefully, you may spot a goat or two roaming the mountain pastures.
