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.

... our farewells and caught the train to Voss. It is a pretty little town which I think is popular for skiing in winter. We thought the train trip here would be very scenic but we only caught glimpses of the scenery because a lot of the time we were going through tunnels. I hope tomorrow will be better. It was raining a bit when we arrived but we didn't have far to walk. We are in a hostel and there are quite ...
... Aurlandsfjord tributary to Flam. Normal day trekkers then board the Flam Railway for a spectacular trip up and out of the valley to Myrdal, rejoining the main rail line to Oslo or back to Bergen. Not being normal, Barb and I have scheduled a night at the Heimly Pensionate, a nice hotel right at the head of the fjord in Flam.
To say that this is a popular tourist attraction is an understatement. Buses line up at the ferry dock emptying ...
... time I stop and go for a little walk now in this land I simply leave the
satnav and video camera etc on the bike. At restaurants etc I notice people
simply put their cameras on a table and go to order food or leave their car
doors wide open while they go for a walk into the nearby hills. It really is a
fantastic feeling to know you can trust leaving almost anything anywhere and on
return it will still be there. There are certainly not many country's left in ...
... Voss where we stayed in a cabin.
When we entered our cabin there's not one cup, plate, knife, fork. Nothing. Why don't they tell you when you book in? There's a good market here for some smart people to turn this whole industry on it's head.
Tomorrow it's maybe back to Sweden.
... rocky mountains, quaint villages, unique tunnels, pastoral villages, raging river rapids, roaring waterfalls, and even a glacier towards the end. Both sides of the train had the amazing views, so everybody got to see. This is some of the Norway I remember from the Disney ride.
