Flåm is Norway in a nutshell

A friend once asked me: “Why did you choose Flåm?”. My immediate reply was: “Have you seen the photos?? Goggle it as they speak for themselves!”.

Flåm, a remote township in the middle of the Noreign fjords, is a little slice of picture-perfect paradise. It is a part of the world where nature is still seemingly unspoiled, leaving us in awe of its power and majesty.

Picturesque Ålesund is hard to find

Hidden away in the fragmented coastline of central Norway lies the picturesque gem of Alesund. This city surrounded by islands and fjords boasts not only beautiful landscapes, but some of the country’s most exquisite architecture. Here, wonderful art nouveau buildings line the waterfront really just putting Alesund over the top as one of Norway’s most scenic spots.
