Booking a guide

booking-av-guideIn Ulvik, there is a lot of history and a lot to see. It is possible to book local guides via the tourist-information depending on what you are interested in, whether it is specific buildings or themes such as the village mill, the church or the poet Olav H. Hauge. It is also possible to book a general town walk or a longer guided mountain hike. Our guides are flexible and will adjust the tour according to your needs.
An example of our one hour town-walk: We will start in the centre of the village and guide you up and inside the village-mill before returning to town centre along the river Tysso, along the fjord promenade and by Hauge’s memorial before we end the tour in the church. During the tour, you will be offered not only historical but also cultural facts about Ulvik as a town.

Contact Ulvik tourist-information for inquieries regarding guided tours around in town centre, to the village-mill, the church or a guided forest-hike.
