A great way to step back in time for a moment but with all the comforts of today!
Welcome to my secret escape!
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.

I love to travel, meet new people and explore cultures.
The travel highlights this year was an truly amazing week in Barcelona, the “perfect road trip” roadtrip in the US ; San Francisco - Calistoga - Santa Barbara - Las Vegas Grand Canyon - Los Angeles. And weekendtrip to Gaustatoppen in Norway.
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!
Currently, I work in Oslo as a clinical psychologist - and some times a photographer, but travels to Vågå as often as possible. If I'm in Oslo, my parents will welcome you!
