I had been looking for months to find Gudbrandsdalen Farm and Snaghol/Snakhol/ farms and finally found a great resource for finding farms and getting precise directions. After googling to no end for these farms, I accidentally was sent to MAPCARTA and VOILA!! There was the first farm. I was able to get a map, see the area in 3D(not too clear) and get directions/time to get there from where I will be staying. Having found Snaghol, I thought I'd try the other farm name. I first was taken to Germany even though I had put in Norway, but after three or four tries putting the name in the search place, there was the farm I wanted. My grandmother had said her mom said the farm was an hour from Oslo and it was exactly 52 minutes via the directions they gave. BTW, if after you find the farm, be sure to put your pointer on the green pin, and you can make the map larger or smaller and the farm will always be in site.
