In case you're a cheese lover Undredal

Undredal is a small village in the municipality of Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The popular tourist destination of Undredal is located along the Aurlandsfjorden which is a branch of the massive Sognefjorden in Norway's "fjord-country." It sits along the Aurlandsfjorden, about 5 kilometers (3.1 mi) south of the mouth to the Nærøyfjord. Undredal is home to the smallest stave church in Northern Europe, Undredal Stave Church.

With a population of approximately 100 people and 500 goats, Undredal is famous for the brown goat cheese (geitost) that is still produced the traditional way. The production of cheese is essential to the local economy as eight farms produce 10 to 12 short tons (9,100 to 10,900 kg) of cheese each year. Goat sausage is also produced locally. Before 1988, Undredal was only accessible by boat, but since then a road connection has been made by constructing two lengthy tunnels as part of the European route E16 highway. The Gudvanga Tunnel leads southwest to the village of Gudvangen and the Flenja Tunnel goes to the towns of Flåm and Aurlandsvangen to the northeast. There is a brief 700-meter (2,300 ft) long length of road between the tunnels that have an access road to Undredal 6.5 kilometers (4.0 mi) to the north. This little village was mentioned in Rick Steves' show about Norway.
