Visit The Valley

Norskedalen is rich in natural beauty and diversity, encompassing about 400 acres of scenic coulee (valley) along Poplar Creek. While hiking the over 7 miles of trails one can encounter an amazingly wide variety of flora and fauna. The trails take you through pine plantations, over the cold, clear creek, past many springs bubbling up into crystal pools and spilling into the creek, along wooded hillsides and rocky outcrops of goat prairies, and along the valley floor.

Visit the Historic Bekkum Homestead to experience life as it was in the mid-1800’s; visit The Immigration Story in the Thrune Visitors’ Center to understand what drove them to leave Norway and why they chose to stay in Western Wisconsin.
