Pub/dining area

SkåraBakkane is a pub/tea place located where no one would think anyone could live. Yes, because at Skår there are only 2 permanent residents and can thus boast of being the smallest village in our region that has its own pub. To get to Skår you have to take a ferry, which gives the town an exotic feel.

From the large terrace that has been built next to the repurposed barn, you can enjoy the most spectacular view in the entire fjord of Hjørundfjord.

Apart from the beautiful view, you can endulge yourself with exquisite local dishes. Short-distance specialties such as cured ham and a kind of salami (cured, dried sausage of red deer), accompanied by home-baked flatbread, an appetizer with smoked salmon and maybe Bacalao as the main course? On the dessert menu, you will find vanilla ice cream with berries topped with homemade spruce syrup and a light sprinkling of spruce salt. In the the pre-Christmas season, you can order home-made "smalahåve", a kind of prepared sheep`s head. Here you can try 3 different recipes - both from Voss and Sunnmøre, one type is speka smalahove. The goal is to be able to produce and cook most of the food at Skår.

For pre-ordered groups, the chef can accommodate special requests.


SkåraBakkane has accommodation in the farmhouse.
