Sygard Grytting in Winter Key Brief   This award-winning property has been in the Grytting family for over 700 years. Located in the Gudbrandsdalen Valley of Norway (about an hours drive from Lillehammer), Sygard Grytting is a step back in time, this historic farm hotel is one of the country’s oldest wooden hotels, with buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, some of Norway’s best preserved from this time.   I have worked with Stig and Hilde twice before, capturing images of the hotel in summer but this time they wanted to showcase the beauty of the property during a Norwegian winter. Elements required were;   Aerial images of property. Additional internal images of rooms. Key outdoor images showcasing the courtyard and family hospitality.   These clients are fantastic to work with and they are so happy to provide all the extra props required along with excellent creative ideas. This work was created over a 24 hour period on site and then five days processing back home. In the Middle Ages the hotel served as a ‘halfway house’ for travellers heading into the mountains. The term ‘halfway house’ means literally halfway into your journey, and travellers would have stayed only one night. During […]

Espedalen

Espedalen Travelling through Espedalen is a beautiful journey in a lush cultural landscape, ranging from lowlands with picturesque farms to vast open mountain plateaus. This is where the moose roam, and the chances of meeting this king of the forest are good. There are numerous cultural experiences to be enjoyed along the route, such as herb gardens, the potholes at Helvete, nickel mines, horseback riding and local beer from Norway’s only mountain brewery. Espedalen has retained its natural character, and is often referred to as our ‘friendly wilderness’. The natural attractions are many, and the valley is the gateway to Jotunheimen from the east. It is the perfect starting point for hikes, and is ideal for less experienced walkers and others who prefer gentle mountain terrain. At the bottom of the valley you will find Espedalsvatnet, a 13 km-long lake.    To stay in the Espedalen Valley at these properties is the opportunity to experience both Norwegian hospitality and amazing scenery in one location.

Formerly a lodge before it was rebuilt as a hotel, it was originally designed by the grandfather of the current owner. His […]
