Fjordene i Norge: unbelievable!
The impact of sailing in and out of some of Norway’s spectacular fjords beggars description in words. Even photos fail to adequately capture the moment, bereft as they are of the interplay of all the senses when those moments occurred. As we entered the Sognefjorden (at 128 miles/206kms, the longest fjord in Norway) in the small hours of the morning, we dragged ourselves out of bed just after 5am, to spend three hours watching the sun rise over the mountains and bathe the stunning landscapes in an awe-inspiring combination of light and shade. As deep as the neighbouring mountains are high, at times the width of the fjord only just allowed the passage of our ship, adding to the sense of astonishment.
