Piltingsrud gard - a room in the state of being

Where east meets west in the kingdom of the author Mikkjel Fønhus, just north of Ringerike, in Valdres, you’ll find Piltingsrud Gard, Teatergarden. Between the river and the forest the big buildings surround the courtyard as they have done in hundreds of years.

Piltingsrud wants to be a carrier of the history of the estate, the farming and the crafts that were a part of the daily life on the farm from the old days. The theatre is our cultural contribution. To fully understand the lives we live, we sometimes need to step outside and look at ourselves from a distance.

The bear park in Flå

In the bear park in Flå you can come close to many different kinds of animals.

The bear park is, true to its name, a wildlife park with many beautiful bears. But you can also see many other species like lynx, fox, moose, deer, roe-deer and numerous farm animals like goats, horses, pigs, hen and not least, hedgehogs. You can meet all of these and some can be handled and cuddled.
