Norway / Flam

Fjord arms cutting through the landscape are a common sight along the Norwegian coast. After the last ice age, the wild and beautiful scenery of Western Norway was formed by water melting from glaciers, and rivers that carved their way through rock from the earliest period of the earth's history. When the ice receded, the landscape was completely transformed -high into the mountains.

Aurland Harbour District comprises four pleasant harbours: Flåm, Aurland, Undredal and Gudvangen, nestling securely in the innermost part of the famous Sognefjord. Big cruise ships squeezing through narrow fjord arms surrounded by snow-clad peaks and waterfalls cascading down mountainsides, are a beautiful but usual sight. The 204 kilometre-long Sognefjord, which is the longest and deepest fjord in the world, have been a highlight and a main attraction for cruise tourists along the Norwegian coast for many decades.
