World Heritage Bortom Åa

Welcome to the Decorated Farm House in Fågelsjö
A World Heritage

Fågelsjö gammelgård, also called "The Farm Past the Stream", is one of seven decorated farm houses of Hälsingland that made it on to UNESCOs list of World Heritages 1st of July 2012.


Visit us and find out what life was like for a wealthy farming family. Step over the threshold of this grand early 19th century farm, where everything has been preserved. Look around in the old gunsmith’s workshop, examine the farmhands’ lodgings and the grain storage with seven locks.

Stay over in Fågelsjö

We offer housing in Fågelsjös old "Gästis" which is linked to STFs Hostels. We have around 20 beds and the hostel is open all year round. 

Stay in a cabin

In the village there are small cabins with room for about 20 people. They have a very basic standard with the option of self household, with access to showers and toilets in a separate building.


American house Café

In the "American House" next to Gammelgården you'll find Café Bortom Åa. We serve coffee, home made pastries, bred, cinnamon buns and lunch.

The American House is also available for bookings.

More information about the courses can be found in the summer program.
