A Norwegian House By A Fjord

By | December 6, 2018

A friend of mine visited Zanzibar a few weeks ago and told me she’s found her special place. “It was something to do with the light, I can’t really explain it, but it gave me so much energy,” she said. I understood immediately. I feel the same about Norway. If you haven’t been, it’s a MUST – the scenery is magical! One family who get to enjoy the power of the nature daily is Eldrid, Martin and their little son Aron. The family live in a house overlooking one of Norway’s most stunning fjords in Stranda in the SunnmØre region of Western Norway.  These snapshots from the main living room beautifully capture a home where nature is the order of the day – inside and out! 

“Soon the snow will melt, the waterfalls will make music again and the green beauty of the fjord will spring forth.” – Eldrid

Could you imagine looking out over this fjord? The weather changing every five minutes as it rolls in off the North Sea – so dramatic!

We’re going skiing in Hemsedal in early January – I can’t wait! If you have any tips I’d love to hear them!

You can see more pics for Eldrid’s cabin here and read more about the region here (I see you can ski there in the winter!)

Naturally I can’t wrap up the post without sharing a few more inspiring Norwegian cabins with you! Here are a few I love: a magical Norwegian mountain cabin, a rustic Norwegian cabin hide-away and a cosy Norwegian ski chalet.

Where’s your special place?
