We left Flåm, a small village of 350, to slowly cruise the large fjord to Gudvangen, where we circled back by bus. The Sognefjord is an UNESCO world heritage area.
It was pouring, like much of western Norway, that day. The area can get 137 to 197 inches (3,500 to 5,000 mm) of rain a year. Bergen has completely earned the title the “City of Rain.”
The eco-friendly cruiser glided silently along, as the rain came down in a deluge. I dashed out several times to see if I could get any photos at all. I had to remove my glasses, quickly lift my camera and pray.
