I spent 4 days in Norway 🇳🇴 and felt that I would have sold myself short if I didn’t visit the fjords.
A long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs, as in Norway, typically formed by submergence of a glaciated valley.
As costly as it was to do the “Norway in a Nutshell Tour, I “bit the bullet” and did it, opting for the one day Tour.
We left Oslo Central Station at 8:25 a.m. by train headed north east to Bergen and returned on the 10:59 train for the 7 hour ride back to Oslo.
This legendary tour takes you through Norway’s most breathtaking UNESCO-protected fjord and mountain scenery, as well as a trip on Europe’s top scenic rail journeys.
What we saw on the way
I thought the snow would have melted by now as we are in June but we there was still a lot of snow in the mountains. Luckily I came prepared with warm clothing because as the train snaked up, down and through the mountain tunnels, the temperature fell.
The chalets we saw along the way were just magical as out of a fairy tale.
I wasn’t expecting to see so many waterfalls either. They kept dropping out off and over cliffs.
The Norway in a nutshell ® trip takes you through some of Norway’s most beautiful fjord scenery.
You will experience the scenic Bergen Railway, the breathtaking Flåm Stalheimskleiva (May-September).Railway, the Aurlandsfjord, the narrow and dramatic UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord and the steep hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva (May-September).
It has been a very hectic last few days that I hardly have the time to update my blog but I still want to share some photos and other snippets along the way.
