Activities and Tours

Salt tours can be arranged - you will be taken to a working salt mine. Krona will tell you in her own unique style more about why there is salt in the middle of the country, how it was discovered, the way salt was mined in earlier years and how salt is mined on such a small scale today. You will have time to ask questions and taste some of the local ‘windpomp’ sherry. This tour can also be done by donkey cart.
