We rented two electric Renault Twizys in the village and made our way up to the farm. The drive is fun, lots of cool views and a narrow and dark tunnel. Up there the view is cool, unfortunately only a “so so” waffle was sold....More

This is a must! Amazing place, and the history. Think about the people who lived here, High up in the mountain, without the road

Beautiful experience. We went by car, and it was worth it. Check the time when you go up. The tunnel up is open at the hour and down at the half.

It was interesting experience to drive up to Kjeasen trough long and dark tunnel. It was a little bit scary but worth the time to drive up and see lovely landscape. If you going to Eidfjord don't miss this spot also on a rainy day!...More

The farm is open for visitors 24/7 unless the road is for some reason closed. Souvenir/waffle sales have irregular schedules, but are often open most days during late June till August.
