It was definitely amazing. While we did not take photos precariously hanging for dear life off the edge of a cliff, the views from the water was equally spectacular. Now you need to understand that almost the entire coastline of Norway is made up of these “mountains”. Yep. They rise from the very deep and what you see are like icebergs, just the tip only.
In fact they rise so high that some parts are still covered with snow when we arrived in high summer (it was June). So you’d understand that we remain in “winter” clothing simply because the tropical in us could not adjust so quickly.
Our journey only took us to one – the Sognefjord. And it is quite a place to get to and links with a railway that ascends from water’s edge to the skies… ok just up the mountain. But it was a steep incline at some places and the train felt like it was heaving and puffing to pull its own weight plus the lot of us tourists.
And what else can you expect to find here?
Trolls. Heheh. Fortunately not for real, but in the form of figurines. In the town of Laerdal they appear to be attempting to capitalize on this myth. Perhaps one could be lurking in the mountains and fjords around you… watch out!
Join us here for this reminisce of the fjords. Did you take a dare devil photo at the edge?
