    Is it all it's cracked up to be?…yes. Fjords, all the way!

    Train from Oslo-Myrdal then all aboard the Flam railway that transports you down the hillside to the fjords.
    A ferry across to Balestrand for a fabulous 2 night stay at the Kviknes-an old style hotel where you wonder if a set of twins may appear at the end of the hall …

    ... and some savings, too).

    We first headed to see an enamel artist’s workshop in a nearby village. The two proprietors were a couple (married 53 years) who moved to this area 41 years ago to establish their gallery/business of firing enamel artwork onto copper.

    ... mentioned, Gudvangen is small, such that there is really nowhere to eat except the overpriced restaurant at the tourist center near the port. Due to a lack of options, we were relegated to shopping for groceries for dinner at the gas station/market. The end result being a chicken-tomato soup we threw together...certainly not the greatest.
