Nordigard Blessom is a vibrant 17th century farm in Gudbrandsdalen, placed in historic and fairytale-like surroundings. A great way to step back in time for a moment but with all the comforts of today! Welcome to my secret escape in the Gudbrandsdalen valley-a true Norwegian experience!

The space
The Blessom family has for several hundred years operated the farm in the old fashioned way, where several generations are living together.

Nordigard Blessom is a fully operational sheep-farm from the 17th century, where, during the summer months, the sheep can be seen grazing in the lush hills behind the farm. Gudbrandsdalen has a long tradition of welcoming guests, and is widely known for its hospitality. Whith visitors in the house, only the very best of food and beverages were served, and stories from near and far were shared. The village of Vågå was early discovered by English Lords who fell in love with the picturesque timber-framed buildings and the majestic surroundings. Vågå also became a chosen place of retreat amongst artists.

Nordigard Blessom was already back in the olden days a guesthouse, housing numerous artists from time to time. The doors have now been re-opened for the public to experience a vibrant 17th century farm in Gudbrandsdalen, in historic and fairytale-like surroundings. Our primary incentive is for you to experience the unique tranquility of the 17th century log-houses on our farm. However, with modern comfort, Wifi may be used if desired.

The atmosphere at Nordigard Blessom will entice you to slow down, forget the time and enjoy the simple things in life, such as our fantastic surroundings. And if you have a car at disposal, staying with us gives you the perfect opportunity to travel to Galdhøpiggen and Besseggen, or to places such as Geiranger, Stryn, Lom, Valdresflya and Rondane with ease.

Located between north and south, east and west our farm has become the accomodation of choice for those traveling from Oslo - Sogndal, Oslo - Bergen, Oslo - Tronheim, Oslo - Geiranger and Oslo - Ålesund. For those spending time in Vågå related to business or otherwise, the offer of our home-like atmosphere and home-made meals has become more and more appealing. The farm is located a short walk from the town-center with grocery stores within a few hundred meters down the road.

We offer rich traditions, wonderful newly restored wooden houses from the 16th - and 17th century as well as a barn full of animals. A genuine experience with a difference making guests come back time after time. Guests from near and far are welcome all year around.

Guest access
You will have your own 2-floors small logbuilding with your own bathroom and a fully-fitted kitchen. In ground floor you will find the kitchen/livingroom. And in 1th floor bathroom and bedroom. Kitchen is brand new and handmade. Bathroom is from year 2000 so not brand new :-)

Lunch and a light evening meal can be arranged and if you want to dine elsewhere, we can recommend exciting places in near proximety of the farm.

The Blessom family lives at the farm - in another house, so you can check in/out all night!

Location

Vågå, Oppland, Norway

Nordigard Blessom is surrounded by four national parks; Jotunheimen, Rondane, Reinheimen and Breheimen. The farm is a brilliant starting point if you want to explore the mountains, be it by foot in the summer-season, skiing in the witer or by horse-back winter and summer. We're surrounded by abundant wildlife and with a bit of luck you'll see different kinds of deer as well as the king of the forest - Mr. Moose.

MOUNTAINS WE RECOMMEND
BESSEGGEN:
Voted one of the worlds most exciting hikes by National Geographic! Visited by 35000 people pr. year and measuring 1743 meters above sea-level this hike offers adrenalin as well as stunning views.

The boat Gjende III and Gjendine can take you into the depths of the wilds at Jotunheimen and Besseggen, with their enchanting surroundings and amazing places to explore. Most people choose to take the boat from Gjendesheim to Memurubu and walk back. The walk normally takes 5 - 7 hours.

GALDHØPIGGEN
The top of Norway and the tallest mountain of Northern Europe rises 2469 meters above sea-level. Not too hard to reach this hike appeals to experienced mountaneers as well as to novices.

Expeditions to Norway's highest mountain have been made from Juvasshytta cabin for more than 120 years. In the footsteps of pioneer Knud Vole there are daily trips to the summit from 1 June to mid-September.

Organiser: Juvasshytta
Open: Daily, 01.06 – 15.09
Time: 10:00
Price: Adults 200,-nok Children 150,-nok

Galdhøpiggen can also be hiked from the Spiterstulen lodge in Visdalen, with a technically very easy, but still somewhat strenuous climb of 1300 m — nearly 4000 ft. It takes four hours walk up, two hours down. From Spiterstulen, hikers do not have to cross the Styggebreen glacier, and hence a guide is not required. Ardent peak-baggers may count three summits on the route from Spiterstulen: Svellnose, Keilhaus topp and the summit itself.

BUKKELÆGERET
Bukkelægret is a spectacular walk between Gjendebu and Memurubu. Bukkelægret itself is a steep climb of about 500 metres straight up from Gjendebu. This walk can be done in either direction and normally takes 3 to 5 hours.

Ingrid - 34 from norway. I love to travel, meet new people and explore cultures. My heart belongs to Jotunheimen - the biggest and most impressive mountain range in Norway. Its highest peak, Galdhøpiggen (2469 metres) is the highest mountain in Scandinavia. Besseggen hike is one of my favorit hikes, an truly magnificant experience! I work as a clinical psychologist - and some times a photographer. One year ago I took the best decision in my life: moving back to Jotunheimen, where I grow up, after many years abroad! I enjoy every minits of my new life and I am looking forward to introduce you to my hidden get away in Jotunheimen! Welcome!

During your stay
I (Ingrid) live and work in Oslo, but I spend as much time as possible at farm. If I`m not there my family will take good care of you! They will be happy to tell you what to do in the area.

My father: Sigurd's family derives from Nordigard Blessom and have lived on the farm many generations back. A veterinarian by profession he spends his days visiting farms in the neighboring villages. As a walking "Blessom-encyclopedia" Sigurd will shed light on everything you might want to know about the farm and the area itself.

My mum: Sigurd's wife, Sidsel, is originally from Østfold. After being captivated by the Blessom-heir Sigurd she moved to Nordigard Blessom, together they have three children; Ingrid (me), Pål and Estin. Filled to the brim with local knowledge she's the perfect hostess and will tell you what's worth doing and seeing in the area.
