While you may have
been to Solvang may times, this adventure will take you
to places you have never explored and casts light on
some of this Danish town's hidden secrets. Enjoy a
short docent-guided walking tour of this quaint
old-world architectural-style town with a local guide.
To appreciate Solvang's Danish heritage, you'll visit
the Elverhøj Museum of History & Arts, this museum
showcases the history of Solvang as the rooms are filled
with the city's historic photographs, artifacts, Danish
arts, crafts and period pieces. Next we will explore a
Lavender farm at the height of it blooming season! With
five acres of Grosso variety lavender - the most potent
variety, the fields should be breathtakingly beautiful
against the backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Three
hundred year old oak trees dot the grounds, and the
driveway is lined with olive trees planted by Spanish
Missionaries over 180 years ago. This tour includes
lunch at a Swedish buffet in Solvang.
