Dybing Farm is located on 250 privately owned acres of fields, meadows and forest, overlooking the trout-rich Dybing Lake nestled below majestic mountains in the peaceful valley that time forgot. The only sound that breaks the stillness is birdsongs, distant sheep-bells, gurgling water in the nearby creek or the rush from waterfalls across the lake.
Here you can relax while soaking in the sun and the beauty around you, go boating, fishing and hiking. Also explore the farm as well as the surrounding areas of interest.
Boating and Fishing on the 2.5 km long Dybing Lake
You can fish for trout (at no extra cost) from our motorboat or from shore. Fly-fishing is also popular. Experience the area from canoe and paddleboat or play and swim in the crystal clear water at Dybing Lakes own private beach.
Island and Waterfall
By boat you can also reach the beautiful island, the cave where Norwegian resistance soldiers hid during World War II or what remains of 4 ancient mill houses by the majestic Dybing waterfall.
Hiking on marked Hiking Trails
The Experience Dalane (Opplev Dalane) hiking trail passes right by Dybing Farm. Part of this trail is the centuries old church path from Dybing to Heskestad. Rather than hiking to Heskestad you can choose the opposite direction along Dybing Lake and up the mountain side; crossing over the huge waterfall to Roeysland, Fjelde and to the popular lookout, Gullbergtuva, with its gorgeous view which stretches all the way to the North Sea.
The trail is a good starting point for exciting explorations in the unscathed landscape. In addition to breathtaking nature you may see moose, deer, hare, fox, mink and different kinds of birds, maybe even a golden eagle. And, of course, trolls are always lurking in the many secret caves...
Towards the end of July and in August the hills and mountains come alive with delicious and healthful blueberries. In due course, the bright red cranberries appear. Also, wild raspberries are everywhere for your enjoyment. If you are really lucky you might even find every gourmands dream, the plump yellow royal cloudberries!
Lysefjord with its world famous Preikestolen
Many of our guests enjoy a day trip to Preikestolen, the world-renowned pulpit shaped mountain that juts precariously over the Lysefjord. If you do not feel sporty enough for the two hour hike to the top, it can be admired from below while cruising comfortably on a tour boat on the spectacular Lysefjord.
