Welcome to Langedrag mountain farm and wildlifepark
The mountain farm lies around 1.000 metres above sea level. The construction of the farm started i 1978 to realise the family Thorson´s dream of a sanctuary for animals, birds and people. Langedrag lies like a fairy-tale castle in beautiful surroundings, with magnificent views of the lakes and mountains between Hallingdal and Numedal.

We want the farm to be at one with nature as far as possible. With a great deal of respect for nature´s own selection over millions of years, here at Langedrag we have tried to conserve the most natural and primitive breeds of each kind of animal. Examples of this are the Norwegian fjordponies, the goats, the mouflon sheep, the highland cattle and pigeons. They all have markings and colours which nature has given them in the competition for survival. There are 22 species on the farm, with a total of approx. 250 individuals, which include also wolves, lynx, reindeer, artic fox, horses, goats, Telemark cattle, Yak, fowl, duck, geese, and rabbits.

You are most welcome for a day visit to our mountain farm and nature park. But why not stay overnight at the farm ? During weekends you can take part in milking the goats before eating a big farm-breakfast. Enjoy the mountain life during the day, and then the table is set for dinner in the evening.
