Geiranger is the Best Fjord in Norway

I had long heard tales about Geiranger and Geirangerfjord. I had heard of its beauty and amazing landscapes. It was said that it was the best of the fjords. I haven’t seen all of the fjords in Norway but I’ve seen a lot of them and all of the supposed top fjords. With that said, […]

Flam is More Than a Railway

If you’ve heard of or been to Flam, Norway then it’s probably because of the railway or as part of the well-trodden Norway in a Nutshell tour that is so popular out of Bergen. I had previously done that tour twice and hence did the Flam Railway twice as well without ever taking the time […]

Bergen, Norway is Simply a Nice Place

Bergen, Norway is the gateway to the fjords and probably the most beautiful city in Norway. It rains some 250 days a year and is very expensive. The people are nice, the food is good and there’s a lot to see and do. There’s nothing stressful or outlandish about Bergen itself at all. So after […]

Hiking Preikestolen, Norway

Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock is one of the most famous hikes and lookouts in the world. The view atop Preikestolen has been named the worlds best by several notable travel publications. Take my word for it, the views are amazing but that’s not half the story of Pulpit Rock; first you’ve got to get up […]

Hike to Kjerag, Norway

Day Trip to Greenland

Greenland is that huge block of ice that you’ve stared at on a map for all these years. You know, the big white island on the map just below the North Pole, near Iceland and Canada. I bet you thought nobody lived there or I bet that you never even thought about it. Truth is […]

A Weekend in Iceland

In the past decade since I was last in Iceland in July 2000, it has become a serious tourist destination. A lot has changed in this small Scandinavian island nation. It’s about half price what it used to be after the collapse of the economy, although it’s still bloody expensive. The capital city of Reykjavik […]

The Faroe Islands

The fantastic and forgotten Faroe Islands are a simple short flight from Denmark, Norway, Iceland and even the UK but they are so far off the general tourist map that few people ever actually make it here. It’s a real shame because this 18 island jigsaw puzzle of an island nation is well worth the […]
