Ørsdalen Mines

From the early 1900s until after World War II, there was mining in Ørsdalen. One of the old mines has now been renovated and secured.

To arrange a guided tour of the mine, please contact the cultural office of Bjerkreim at phone number +47 988 80 147. Visiting the mine on your own is not permitted for safety reasons. Guided tours are available on Sundays in July and August, as part of the boat trips on M/K Ørsdølen. For more information about departure times, prices and other details, please visit the Ørsdølen website at
