The Norwegian Fjords
Norway is such a beautiful country and the fjords are just breath taking…
According to Wikipedia, a Fjord is formed when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley by ice segregation and abrasion into the surrounding bedrock.

I was lucky enough to visit a few places in Norway and around the Fjords; Bergen, Stavanger, Olden, Geiranger, Moulde, Flaam, Andalsnes and Alesund. They were all quite different and unique in their own way. Bergen and Stavanger were more built up cities whereas places such as Geiranger and Olden were beautiful Fjord towns.
The lakes are surrounded by picturesque snow topped mountains, forests and floating clouds. Beautiful green and blue tones make this please surreal. The cruise ships I worked on did many Fjord cruises and they were super popular. The weather is usually very cold and the tourist attractions are expensive but it is totally worth it as the scenery is just breath taking. It is no wonder so many people wish to visit.
I think travelling there by Cruise Ship is a great way to see as you get to dock in various locations and also sail through different Fjords and get to take in the entire scenery.
I really don’t think my photos do these places justice. You’d need to take panorama after panorama as the entire 360 degrees was beautiful.
I’m glad I got to experience parts of this beautiful country and I would certainly recommend it, also a great chance to buy an awesome woolly hat!
Has anyone else seen the Fjords?
