My Image of the beautiful farm at Innerdalen, Norway made it into May's issue of National Geographic Traveller magazine as their 'Big Shot'. Here's the image and caption to go with it.
A few hours drive from Trondheim in Norway, you will find the relatively little known valley of Innerdalen. The valley is know by many as ‘Norways Most Beautiful’, featuring the pyramidal peak of Innerdalstårnet, which towers of a still glacial lake. With the nearest car park being an hours walk away the valley has remained relatively peaceful and unchanged from its rural past. At the heart of the valley is the farm of Renndølestra, although still a working farm it’s friendly owner Eystein Opdøl has grass-roofed bunkhouses and a picturesque camp site which opens its doors to hungry hikers during the summer months (I recommend trying the waffles).
Eystein’s family has lived and farmed in the valley for generations, his Grandfather being responsible for the valley’s projected status preserving it’s magical waterfalls, high peaks, ancient forests and traditional ways of life.
