Kjelvik is situated at the top of a hill below a woody ridge and stands testament to the conditions the Nothern Norwegian crofters of Sami decent lived by.

This was the old access route from the sea and, prior to the building of the E6, was the only way in to Kjelvik.This area was once a Sami settlement. It started with reindeer herding and then moved on to fishing and farming. We know that people lived here from 1747. The buildings consist of a cottage,a cowshed/barn, a wood-hall, “Patihuset”(a “cookhouse” and smithy), “sjeltersjåg”(shed), a cellar and a mill.Kjelvik is one of 22 nationally selected "Special Cultural Landscapes" because of it's rich variety of plant life and the traditional farming techniques used on the site.Lefse, waffles and other traditional foods are sold at the croft.Coffee is included in the ticket.
