Exhibitions and program

The nature surrounding Tafjord is wild, beautiful and breathtaking with mountains up from the fjord. The mountains are a great benefit for the electricity production. Today a vast area of the Tafjord mountains have been developed with a total of 7 powerplants that covers a catchment of about 388 square kilometers.


The concrete dam at the mouth of the Zakarias water is 95 meters high and when it was built it was the tallest dam in Norway. It has since then become a tourist attraction in its own right. The Zakariasdam has 70 million m3 of water and therefore the largest reservoir in the Tafjord mountains. It will take you about 15 minutes to drive from our centre up to the Zakariasda

We offer a choice of freshly baked products, hot and cold drinks, and ice cream in our café.
