Norway: The Land of Stunning Scenery & Adventurous Folk

Norway was absolutely beautiful! We went on several amazing hikes and had a very relaxing 5 days through Norway.

From Stockholm we traveled to Oslo and spent one day there. Then Eric and I headed to Bergen! As we traveled to Bergen we did a Norway in a Nutshell Tour that took us on a scenic train ride, a fjord cruise, and a few bus rides to see many different parts of Norway – all of which where breathtaking. Here’s just a few photos…

After leaving Oslo, we headed on a scenic train ride to Flåm. From there, we took a 2 hour fjord cruise!
Boating through the fjords!
After the fjords, we made it to Bergen! A beautiful, adventurous city on the coast. This view is from the top of an epic, half-day hike up Mt. Ulriken along the ridge to Mt. Fløyen.
Another picture from our Mt. Ulriken hike – stunning! PS – While we were on this hike, we saw a Norwegian 8th grade class! There were about 35 kids with backpacking gear and a few teachers; they go out on the tough trail for a few days as part of their PE class – no wonder everyone is adventurous and athletic in this country!
This pretty strip of colorful buildings is Bryggen (a street in Bergen) and it’s full of restaurants and shops. Right around the corner from Bryggen is an amazing sandwich cafe called Godt Brød – and boy do they have good bread!
This is inside Bryggen (the colorful buildings). There are 3-4 stories of wooden hallways like this with various shops, restaurants, and cafes.
We decided to have a little photo shoot in Bryggen because it was fairly empty and there was really cool lighting haha :)

Overall, Norway (Bergen especially) was a nice relaxing part of our trip. Lots of hiking, nature, and cooking dinners in our apartment. The air was crisp, clean, and refreshing!
