Norway by Andrea Albertino
First day in Norway: We landed in Oslo and we spent a relaxing evening visiting the Aker Brygge and enjoying a great dinner in a restaurant overlooking the sea.
Second day: We reached Bergen travelling all day long by bus (from Oslo to Honefoss); by train (from Honefoss to Myrdal and from Myrdal to Flam); and by ferry along the spectacular landscape of Sognefjord. We approached the Brygge at around 9 pm.
Fourth day: We travelled north by car, enjoying the spectacular view of the Geiranger fjord.
Fourth day: We left Geiranger behind and climbed up to the Trollstigen pass. Thanks to a clear and mild day the landscape from the top was simply gorgeous.
Fifth day: A never ending sunset and a delicious dinner combined for a memorable evening spent in Trondheim.
Eighth day: Four times a day nature offers a spectacular show of Maelstrom in Saltstraumen. According to the tide movement, the water moves from the fjord to the sea or from the sea to the fjord; and during the most intense movement you can see whirlpools formed in the water. Ask local people for a tide timetable and hope to get there during the Midnight Sun.
Tenth day: The National Tourist Route of Lofoten offers visitors surprising white and sandy beaches.
Eleventh day: We said goodbye to this heaven while experiencing another great Midnight Sun in Vestpollen, just a few km from Svolvaer, the biggest town in the Lofoten Islands.
