We were originally meant to stay at Fleischers but at the last minute they closed for 2 weeks and transferred our booking to here. The public areas are all really nice and the staff equally so. However the room was pretty ordinary but nonetheless clean with comfy beds which are our two main criteria.
We had lovely lake views from our room with a tiny little balcony opening off it.
The big surprise for us was our dinner on both nights - we were doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour and dinner was included. Many years of travel mean that we don't have particularly high expectations of included dinners - good basic food usually, sometimes quite bland. Not so at the Park - poached salmon with caramelised onions, tender beef fillet with roast vegies and creme brulee with fresh berries on the first night. And the second night was equally awesome - baked cod on garlic mash, melt in your mouth veal fillet with vegies, pannacotta with raspberry sorbet. Two absolutely outstanding meals. As is normal in Norway watch out for the wine costs - even house wine was about $15 a glass.

Up just after 5:30 this morning. We went down at 6 for a pretty quick breakfast then caught a taxi to the train station at 6:30. Our train starts in Bergen so it was already there and we could get onboard. It left on time at 6:51. There were lots of tunnels at the start of the trip but then it opened up for amazing views! The stretch of railway between Bergen and Voss, which was completed in 1893, virtually revolutionised life in the communities along the line, ...
Today is our last day on the ship which is a bit sad. The second week has gone so quickly. Our luggage is out and we have vacated our rooms. We leave the ship this afternoon but rooms have to be cleaned before the next lot come on in Bergen to head north again tonight. Consequently we have a lazy day (again) for our last few hours to Bergen. There have been a lot of different people this week who came on ...
... me stood up and took photos at the AMAZING landscapes & waterfalls. I moved around lot. Took lot of photos and videotaped it. Seagulls joined us for the rides (of course to get the free food from the tourists!)
Cruising through the fjord about 2 hours until to Flåm where we get off to catch train to the top of the fjord. This is where the most beautiful scenery railway in the world.
The railway is 55 degrees inclined ...
... all over the world who have been lured to this spectacular day trip in the most beautiful and accessible of fjords. Our car ferry ride was very pleasant as we staked out our seats on the outside deck at the back of the boat behind a bench which we used as a protective barrier against the hoards. We haven't toured all of these castles and fortified cities without picking up a trick or two. Koreans, Japanese, Indians, Pakistanis, Germans, ...
... parked up ahead. People are out their cars and wandering
around. What the hell is going on I wonder?? I do a u-turn and headed up a
rather steep dirt road and following a sign which read "Cabins to rent". After
abut 2 miles up this steep and twisty road I see this house with cabins. A few
knocks at the door and a wonder around the area and not a single person is to be
found and so its back down this steep and slippery dirt road.
I join the queue of traffic ...
