And Do Good: In addition to focusing on eco-friendly energy usage and the preparation of eco-friendly food, Fjaerland Fjordstove gives all of their tips for a project in Uganda. The hotel’s owner is helping to create awareness around the project (building a school) in Uganda by cycling large parts of the way down from Veitastrond to Kampala and all the way up again.
