Norskedalen means "Norwegian valley" in Norwegian (what else?) and this beautiful nature, cultural, and historic center tucked into the bluffs and valleys in SE La Crosse County offers a little bit of everything. The Thrune Visitor Center offers history and artifacts, trail guides (there are over 9 miles of trails on the grounds), a viewing room, and a gift shop. A historic "stave" or church hosts weddings, the Bekkum homestead provides a unique and authentic look at 19th century life in Wisconsin, and the Paulsen Cabin (not named after any relatives of mine, as far as I know) offers overnight accommodations.
This weekend, Discover Wisconsin takes a look at this incredible, peaceful, and fun place called Norskedalen. From casual visits to their well-organized events, this just might be a place you have to add to your list - especially once spring actually decides to show up!
You can watch below on demand, as well as on Fox Sports Wisconsin Saturday morning at 10, on WKOW-TV Channel 27 in Madison Saturday night at 6:30, or on FOX6 in Milwaukee Sunday morning at 10. Uff Da!
