    Alesund - Land of the Trolls

    September 6, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Off the boat all day today on a tour which took in Borgundfjord, the valley of Validal, the powerful Gudbrandsjuvet Gorge and then down the 11 hairpin bends of ' Trolls Path - the Trollstigen mountain road. We also saw the waterfall at Stigrora and the Trolls Wall (3280 feet vertical mountain face) at Andalsnes.
    The weather could have been kinder at the start but the rain stopped and we had dry coach stops until the final one where the Wall was lost to low level cloud. Overall, a great day out.
    We were back on board for another delicious dinner and ended the day watching another show from the entertainment team who range from very good to room for improvement!

    Alesund, Norway

    June 22, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Ålesund is known as the Venice of Norway. Our tour gave us a view of ancient and modern Alesund. After a major fire in 1904, the city was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau period.
    We traveled to the city mountain of Mt. Aksla where we had incredible views of the archipelago, town center and Sunnmore Alps.
    Along the way we saw ladders on the roofs of homes leading to the chimney. Heat is critical in Norway so chimney sweeps need access for maintenance.

    Der nächste Morgen verspricht einen sonnigen Tag im hohen Norden. Wir nutzen den Stopp in Ålesund, um unser Frühstück auf der Sonnenterrasse mit Blick auf die Stadt zu genießen. Ein paar Tagesausflügler steigen hier aus, aber um nichts in der Welt, wollten wir auf das verzichten, was uns heute erwartet...Read more
