NORWAY - 12 DAY

Twelve days - a thousand memories!

Every single nautical mile along the coastal cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes and back is filled with new experiences. The mountains are immutable, but the weather and the light change constantly, transforming the colours and appearance of the landscape. Here, you will encounter the soft grey of the rain, the crackling green of the Northern Lights or the golden glow of the midnight sun. Along the coast, tiny fishing villages shelter from the fierce Atlantic breakers, while larger coastal towns nestle in the narrow space between wild mountains and the seashore.

*Geiranger visited 01.06–31.08.
*Hjørundfjorden visited 01.09-31.10.

Here you can find fish farming, horticulture and a small store owned by the villagers who also participate in it’s operation on a voluntary basis. The river through the village has given power to grind grain in the old days and an old mill house tells that history while a modern power plant provides power to 2000 households tells the modern story of the river.

This landslide blocked the valley and dammed the river. The water flooded a hamlet, and now you can paddle over this settlement and see the walls of the old farmhouses, the road, a bridge and the old gate through the glass bottom of the canoe.

With their beautiful mountains, Hjørundfjorden and Norangsdalen have fascinated Europe's royals and nobles, adventurers and celebrities. Norangsdalen is said to have been visited by seven queens, and the narrow road that winds its way under the steep mountains is often called the queen’s route.

Here you cycle on a rural road with little traffic giving you plenty of time to admire thewild mountains and traces of the ravages of nature. You can also see the small farmhouses, built wall to wall and almost into the ground, to withstand the avalanches in the area. In Lyngstøylvatnet you can see the remains of the old road, the foundations of the farmhouses and the gateway that is now submerged in the crystal clear water after the mountainside collapsed in a landslide in 1908, closed off the valley and dammed up the river.
