A guide to Solvang


Elevate your stay with our favorite activities and stay up-to-date on events happening throughout our charming town. Plus, as a guest of The Landsby, you can experience the breathtaking Santa Barbara Wine Country with our Local Winery Guide featuring 2-for-1 and complimentary tastings at some of the best wineries and vineyards the area has to offer.

Hiking Trails

Get outside and experience rolling hills, wild flowers that perfume the air, and breathtaking hiking trails that can give you a glimpse into our beloved valley.

Grass Mountain is a great choice for those looking for a challenge with a 4.5 mile trail. For those who want to take it a little easier, our staff frequently hikes Refugio Ridge which gives you ocean views. You can take this slow and enjoy it with your family, or speed it up for a warm up before a day of wine tasting.

And for those who want to experience the beauty of Nojoqui Falls, walk just a short distance on the trail to gaze at the falls - you won't be disappointed!

Hot Spots

Be drawn into Scandinavian culture strolling Solvang's flower-lined street where Danish history melds with modern-day wine tasting rooms, windmills, and upscale shops in our charming Danish-American town.

The Copenhagen House aims to represent some of the best design products from contemporary Denmark in this Danish Capital of America. Enjoy an olive oil tasting from California grown and crafted products at Solvang Olive Co.

Just a few miles from town you can visit Clairmont Farm, where they grow lavender and sell it's oil, which is known for its many healing qualities!

Wine & Treats

One of our favorite perks we’re able to offer guests is our central location in downtown Solvang. The Landsby is just steps from tasty cheese shops and famous Danish bakeries! That’s right - you won’t have to travel far for an Aebleskiver at Solvang Restaurant or step into any of the five authentic bakeries, like Solvang Bakery, for a flaky, buttery delicious pastry.

For those looking for a wine centered weekend - Landsby guests can enjoy complimentary and 2 for 1 wine tastings at a handful of walking distance tasting rooms with our central location. Be sure to pick up a Winery Guide at the front desk!

And if you're up for an adventure, experience a day in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley wine country with a customized, private wine tour provided by Solvang Wine Tours.

Outdoor Recreation

Plan an afternoon exploring our area by bike, horse, or balloon!

Pedego Los Olivos is bringing a fresh kind of fun to wine country with multiple destination semi-guided tours and electric bike rentals. Vino Vaqueros has access to the most breathtaking ranches and vineyards that you can experience by horseback with a glass of wine afterwards.

And for the adventurous, soar over the valley in a hot air balloon with Skys the Limit Ballooning and cheers with a glass of champagne upon landing.

Family Friendly

Have fun experiencing the area with your family and come face to face with some fury friends or learn more about the history that surrounds the valley.

All day, every day, for a nominal fee, visitors to Ostrich Land get a chance to feed ostriches and emus pans of pellets - or simply just say hello! You can also get up close and personal with adorable miniature horses at the Quicksilver Ranch.

Tour the Old Mission Santa Ines, which is proud to be the guardian of a rich collection of paintings, statuary, vestments, manuscripts, and artifacts.
