Together with her husband Bjørn and her children Brita, Gina, and Ola, she does exactly this - giving visitors good experiences. At the National Park Farm at Buer in Odda, in the municipality of Ullensvang, the family receives around 30,000 tourists every year. Some come to get to know the farm and greet the highland cattle, sheep, pigs, and chickens. Others use the National Park Farm as a starting point for hikes to the Buerbreen glacier or the Reinanuten summit. Together with the farm shop and guided glacier hikes, visitors to Buer and the National Park Farm are certainly not lacking in alternatives – there are many of them!
- We live from agriculture and tourism that are in harmony. Be it the local specialties, nature, the animals, or other reasons that motivate our visitors; we like to share the best that Buer has to offer with our guests. Even if families with children are our main target group - we have interesting offers for everyone.
- And the best thing is that I can do all of this together with my family, says Elisabeth.

For generations, the inhabitants of Buer have given advice and travel tips to visitors. And now Elisabeth & family have taken over this. Here are Elisabeth’s best insider tips for your Hardanger holiday.
