Check out our local delicaties

From south to north in Hemsedal you will find a lot of local goodies that you can buy with you home to the cabin or when you drive home after the holiday trip.

If you come from Oslo / Gol, you first come to Ulsåk and Tamt & Vilt. Here you will find "something for every taste" as they say themselves and it is everything from fennel years to spiky sausages and elk chops to hot smoked salmon and rakafisk. You can drop by the factory or buy the goods at the shops in Hemsedal. If you want to stop by, we recommend that you contact them first since they are often on a trip in the mountains and collect raw materials.

Spekeloftet at Svøo in Ulsåk is one of Norway's largest producers of pork chops. Here you can get your Norwegian "pinnekjøtt" that always gets the top rate when different producers are tested. Here you can order products directly from the factory or buy at the grocery stores. In addition to chops, you will also find bacon, fennel years and good bacon sausages!

At Kiwi on Ulsåk, you will find most of our local food in refrigerated counters and in the freezer. Himmelspannet's cheeses are in the cheese counter and Tamt & Vilt's delicacies can be found in the freezer counter, among other things.
