The landscape was vast, with a broad valley at the base, and rings of sharp peaks as we climbed. After awhile, snowfields appeared in sheltered pockets, some tinged with red, which the guide told us was algae. Lots of rocky outcrops. On our first stop, we climbed up a short rise ...

I planned on taking a thirty mile chunk out of the distance to Bergen today, with a route that should hopefully take in some nice scenery and combine it with good sailing, as we were promised a 14 knot wind from the NNW and with sunshine, albeit with frigid temperatures so it ...

Our route initially took us northwards to enter the large fjord called Fensfjorden. This runs in a roughly NNW-SSE direction and towards the south, its’ name changes ...
