Flåm Oppleving

Jorunn Heggdal grew up in Flåm and she runs a small business that offers accommodation and serves food in a smokehouse in the world’s most beautiful fjord scenery. Jorunn is a village host and shares her knowledge about history and local culture with visitors.

Jorunn has a background in local history, cultural management and cultural heritage knowledge from the University College in Sogndal; she is quite knowledgeable about the local nature and cultural heritage. As an example this is conveyed through the food serving in the smokehouse Eldhuset. It is the intention that the guests can hear, see, smell and taste when they visit Flåm.

Jorunn herself points out;

“In order to be a good host for my guests, I need to be knowledgeable about our home. That’s what makes meetings between people valuable.”
