Aarethun AS

Our original legal firm Lærdal Holiday- and Leisure Park ANS was transformed in 2010, into Aarethun AS, due to that the company started with trade in other industries than just tourism. The company has since been started in 1993 in the same Aarethun family and we are celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2023.
