Setesdal - the most well-preserved Farming culture
We take you through Setesdal with its wild river Otra and old logged farm houses. Because of difficult access before the railway, this valley was quite isolated until late 1800, and its inhabitants were therefore able to preserve our old traditions in food, music, wood carving and rose painting.
Nowadays the municipalities are quite rich due to the export of hydroelectric power.
