Irrigation Culture trail

Share

This culture trail provides a fine walk whilst you learn how people have struggled to get water to the fields in earlier times. Skjåk has a pleasant and good climate with high summer temperatures. The village lies in the rain shadow behind the high mountains to the west and therefore has about as much precipitation as the Sahara. "If the Lord gives us sun, we'll get the water ourselves", said the old Skjåk folk and built these inventive irrigation schemes that you can see on this walk. Oversettelse © www.noproblem.no 2009.
