Øvergården is a beautiful scenic piece of land of 1.700 acres with a shoreline of about 4.500 meters – we welcome you to our farm! To meet the animals. Enjoy the untouched nature. The great fishing and the wonderful landscapes. And most of all: The great atmosphere and the rare sound of silence!
We are a family of four who left secure jobs in the city and moved out here about six years ago. Else Marie, a former intensive care nurse and Svein Kristian, a former pilot, replaced a hectic life in the city in favour of more time for family. Our girls, Sofie and Josefine, are thriving in the village of Gutvik, a small village with a big heart and great solidarity.
Else Marie, Sofie, Josefine and Svein Kristian welcomes you dearly to Øvergården – for celebrations and everyday life!
We are a proud provider of the ‘Inn på tunet’ program, a service where the farms are used as the venue for positive experiences. Through engagement in the farm life the service aims to enhance coping, encourage development and increase the overall well-being of a numerous group of people. Typical users of this service are children and young grown-ups, the disabled and elderly people.
The Good Conversation
We are of course concerned that our guests feel comfortable here at the farm – in all ways and for everybody. We encourage the good conversations, sharing each other’s experiences. We have no exact place for such calls, most occur spontaneously, such as on a rock by the sea.
The Rare Sound of Silence
Allow your body and soul to do nothing. In Gutvik it is easy to go ‘offline’, to find inner peace and to focus. Let your mind wander without being surrounded by stress. Go for a walk and listen to the nature, to the waves and to the birds. Allow your shoulders to lower down and let your body discover it’s natural pace. Let the nature take you away and just be! The sound of silence is beautiful and nourishing. Charge the inner you as meticulous as you charge your mobile devices.
Expand your Knowledge
We also mention that we can invite people from the local community, with great knowledge in several areas, to come and share their wisdom. In addition, we can organize an extended guide service. Examples of topics that can be addressed and presented:
