Cruising Norway

We were starting day four of our seven night Cruise & Walk to Norway, navigating the fjord approaching Flam just before sunrise. I had been slow to catch on to the idea that it was possible for a five-star hotel to, literally, float hundreds of miles to the next destination while I slumbered, proving to be an incredible logistical advantage.

We had a wonderful time in Norway. Perhaps the most memorable day started in the village of Flam, pronounced ‘Flom’, with a rail trip up the valley, past a spectacular waterfall, and on to Voss by another train.

Fjordland Norway – I did this holiday last July 2009 and below are my abiding memories:

Going to bed while the sun is still shining took me straight back to my childhood being ordered to bed at a ridiculously early time when I could hear other children playing in the street outside.
