Approaches

Each hamlet has its own special qualities and experiences to offer. Some of the hamlets can only be reached by boat. Exploring these hamlets is exciting, but remember to respect the privacy of the people that live here. There are active farms in many of the places. Show consideration for grazing livestock.

Undredal

Undredal plays a key World Heritage role, both in relation to its location on the map and as a good example of distinctive culture and nature. In this hamlet, there are more goats than there are inhabitants. Therefore, these animals help to create the special character of the village. Among other things, the village is famous for its locally produced goat’s cheese.
