Velkommen til Skogfjorden 2019

Published: June 10, 2019

We are so excited to welcome the first villagers of 2019!  After a week of planning, thinking, and dreaming of all the wonderful things we would like to do this summer, we are ready to jump in and start the fun.  The afternoon began by greeting the deltakere at our border before helping them to choose Norwegian names, exhcange their money, and get settled into their hytter. We then spent some time getting to know each other, before learning more of the ledere names and about the main buildings here at Skogfjorden.  We are celebrating 50 years as a site this summer and feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful location with beautiful, architectural buildings. Up next was kveldsmat where we ate a longtime favorite, meatballs with brunost saus.  We topped off the evening by learning about Skogfjorden with the help of a few salmon. It is the year of the salmon, which we are thrilled to celebrate.  Finally, we ended the night be singing Lev Vel in a ring around the fire. We look forward to our first full day tomorrow!
