Stay in this cute, haunted hotel for the history. Comfortable rooms. Great service. Food is expensive but there are other food options very close by, including a grocery.

What a view! Tons of waterfalls and hair-pin turns. At Gudvagen we had a short stop to admire our first real view of the fjords (sognefjord), and then boarded the ferry that would take us to our stop for the night, the ...
... tracks, going up 865 metres. Both the cruise and the train ride offered stunning views and the town itself was very cute.
We drove through more fantastic scenery, including a couple of glaciers. We visited a stave church. These are medieval wooden churches of which all but one of the surviving examples are in Norway. Norway may have once had up to 2000 of them but today only 29 remain. The one we visited was one of the ...
