My family and I enjoyed this tour, despite having poor weather (lots of rain and 31 degrees F). Our tour guide Iga was excellent and we enjoyed her knowledge of all things Norway and her very entertaining stories. I would definitely rate her 5 stars as a guide! However, I don't feel like the excursion was as advertised, so I had to take a star off - it was raining so I am not sure if that was the issue but we saw a few goats (one brave little goat was especially friendly and so sweet!), however no cows or horses, or other wildlife were seen. This was more of a cheese excursion, where we were given the history of the farm and cheese-making process information, which was nice and informational, but I was hoping to get more animal time. The views are absolutely gorgeous and photo stops are plentiful, so I would definitely still recommend this unless you are (like me) mainly interested in the animal interaction. Hopefully you will get Iga as your guide - she is a great one!!

We thought we rated this already, too. Another great tour. Herdal farm was fun and interesting, and scenery was fantastic. Excellent tour.

We were picked up a short distance from our ship at the appointed time and 15 of us went for a drive up the Eagle Road and then on to Herdal Farm. The driver is also to be commended as this is both a very busy and very beautiful tourist road. Sonia, our guide, is knowledgeable about the area and committed to explaining it to visitors. The farm itself is an unbelievable experience - it is part of Norwegian Heritage and kept in the ways that covered hundreds of years of farming. Brown cheese was sampled and we met the goats and cows of the farm.
We were returned to the ship in time to enjoy the area.
Wonderful and informative. We were not rushed during the experience.

This is a beautiful trip to take. It is about a 45 minute drive through the mountains surrounding the community of Geiranger - a UNESCO heritage site. The journey is stunning in itself, but the farm was the highlight for us. The shepherds there moty students who have returned for several years - also act as tour guides and explain everything you are seeing. They have a small hut with all the cheese products on display. Make sure you taste them - especially the delicious brown cheese. I highly recommend this trip.
