Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord trip

Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord

Norway In a Nutshell Fjords trip

Thursday, Aug 7, 2014

Today we left in the morning from Bergen, Norway using NSB Lokaltog (Local train) with our tickets from Norway in a Nutshell. The trip retraced the route we took when we arrived in Bergen yesterday morning. Finally we arrived in Myrdal after 2 hours. During the trip we met an American family from New Jersey.

We got of at Myrdal and we could see in the town and on the way there were ice covering the mountain sides. We were about 900 meter above the sea level and the temperature was 14 deg C. We waited for few minutes to get on Flam Railway (characteristic green colored train). The train journey lasted for an hour with a stop for nice water fall and slow descend back to sea level and we arrived at Flam. We visited the souvenir shop.

We then boarded Fjords1 cruise liner and took a two hour fjords trip via Aurland, Undredal, and finally arriving at Gudvangen. On our way we went through Aurlands Fjord and Naeroy fjord (very narrow and with different kind of mountain type).

From Gudvangen we took about 1 hour 15 min bus ride back to mountain side and arrive Voss (it was station between Myrdal and Bergen). We went to the souvenir shop there and took the NSB Lokaltog back to Bergen.

Since we already deposited our luggage in the station we had dinner (it started to rain) and stayed at the station until our night train back to Oslo S.

There we took the Router ticket and arrived at our Hotel. Our Indian friend gave us a ride back to Oslo airport.
