Join the Rakfisk festival in Valdres


Rakfiskfestivalen: Rakfisk is a food tradition that can be traced back to the Middle Ages. The name rakfisk is used as early as 1348 and is probably even older. Previously, large quantities of rakfisk were made in Trøndelag, Møre og Romsdal and northern Norway. After a long period of small production, Valdres has become the center for the majority of rakfisk production in Norway. The product name Rakfisk from Valdres was approved in 2006 as a protected geographical indication. This legal protection means that only fish that has been hatched, farmed and processed in Valdres can be sold under the product name Rakfisk from Valdres


This autumn, RunWay has the pleasure of taking you to the world-famous rakfisk festival at Fagernes. This is a trip that many have wanted, and we are happy to be able to fulfill this trip. We get on the bus in Bergen, and drive east towards Golsfjellet and Oset Høyfjellshotell, which will be our base for two nights. On arrival in Oset we are served a wonderful dinner.


The next day we take the bus down to Fagernes and Rakfiskfestivalen. Here we can walk along stalls and taste rakfisk, and other local specialties, and not least enjoy the atmosphere of this fantastic market. Here is music, food and drink, and lots of fun. In the afternoon we return to Oset, and enjoy a wonderful dinner together.


Everything has an end, even a rakfisk festival. After breakfast we get on the bus and drive towards Bergen. We have natural stops along the way, and arrive in the afternoon. Satisfied, good and full after a wonderful trip to Valdres.
