Perched along the shoreline, at the mouth of Sognefjorden and right in the middle of the two picturesque villages of Leikanger and Sogndal in western Norway, Lomelde Gard boasts magnificent views of the glistening water, green forest landscape and snowcapped mountains – it is like it has been taken directly out of a painting of romantic Norwegian nationalism. In fact, these unique surroundings did indeed inspire several of the era’s most famous painters, including Johan Christian Dahl and Thomas Fearnley, who eternalised the landscape in some of the most iconic paintings in Norwegian art history.
