    In the Geirangerfjord

    July 4, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Today after calling into Alesund the ship continued into the Geirangerfjord which is surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, steep cliffs and cascading waterfalls. The mountain peaks appeared to get steeper the further into the fjord the boat travelled. There were many drifts of snow on the higher reaches of the mountains which fed the numerous waterfalls. These waterfalls were quite spectacular and considering that it is summer one can only imagine the volume of water they would discharge in winter.
    When we got to Geiranger we saw almost half the boat get off to do the bus trip back to Molde. We were rather surprised to see the Queen Elizabeth boat (black boat with red funnel) and a ship of the Costa line both in the harbour there. The scenery was obviously a drawcard for the large boats and their passengers.
    Overall it was a spectacular journey.
