The Heathland Centre at Lygra (Lyngheisenteret)

The Heathland Centre  (Lyngheisenteret) is beautifully located on the heathlands at Lygra in Lindås municipality in Nordhordland, about 50 minutes from Bergen. Here you can wander around along paths winding through the heather-clad heaths. As a result of cultivation, pollution and overgrowth, this unique cultural landscape is rapidly disappearing in Norway and Europe. The Heathland Centre is an information centre focused on preserving knowledge and the way of life about how to manage the coastal heathlands. We preserve the heathland through traditional land use including burning and grazing by wild sheep. There is an Exhibition and film both in English. Venue rentals for businesses and weddings. Our varied menu includes locally source wild sheep as well as other products from Western Norway.


June through September: Thursday–Friday 11–15.30. Sunday 12–17.
