Leikanger is a good starting point for excursions and day trips to other small villages and numerous beautiful mountain hikes, and a gateway to even more spectacular scenery.
The village is home to several major international industrial companies:
Stadpipe is a key player in value creation all along the west coast of Norway. It has both small and big customers, throughout Norway and abroad.
Since the company was founded in 1995, it has developed into one of the country’s foremost specialists in advanced piping systems.
Ervik Havfiske is the leading longline fishing vessel owner in Norway and among the largest in terms of catch value.
Sea-frozen line-caught fish is the company’s main product, and the fish is traded on the global market.
