Aurlandsdalen is a long, steep and beautiful valley located in Sogn og Fjordane. The entire valley extends 40 km from Geiteryggen to Vassbygdi. For several centuries, traders have traded here between the markets in Sogn and Hallingdalen, in a good company with farmers, stewards and one and another bachelor in friery.
