Today, you’ll get the chance to experience life on a farm in the far north of Norway. Aalan Farm is a herb and cheese farm found in Lauvdalen, Lofoten, and is run by husband and wife Knut and Tove Åland, with some help from their several children.  

This farm supplies our ships with quality tea and award-winning cheeses throughout the year. It’s one of our only local food suppliers that you can actually visit during a voyage, allowing you to thank them in person for the delicious cheese you’ve had on the ship!  

At Aalan, you’ll learn all about the realities of life on a farm, and you’ll get a chance to taste the cheeses, herbs, and other products that they make from scratch. You can also meet the farm’s goats, dogs, cats, miniature pigs, ducks, and chickens. If you’re lucky, their free-range cow, Victoria, might also make an appearance.
