Kjerringøy Handelssted is idyllically situated in beautiful Kjerringøy and is well-known for, amongst other things, the filming of Knut Hamsun’s novels. The 15 authentic buildings at this traditional North Norwegian trading post are exceptionally well kept.
Here, you can follow the farmhand and the maid through the old buildings with their distinctive and authentic atmosphere, buy boiled sweets in the country store, or take part in many other activities during the summer season. A 20 minute AV-show recounts the history of the trading post. Café, museum shop, old-fashioned country store, guided tours. The service building has been adapted to suit wheelchair users.
