I have always heard that Norway is a great place to visit but never thought it offered something as stunning as I just read in your article. Thanks for enlightening me about such an incredile destination.
Bergen is an amazing place to visit. And the fact that it is the gateway to Fjords makes it even more likely you’ll go there when visiting Norway. I didn’t know anything about it last year when I visited it on a business trip and it stays in my memory and I want to go back there soon.
Now I have a wider option to choose from. Thanks for bringing this up. I no longer have to struggle or bother myself finding a good tour to see the Fjord. I have always trusted your judgment and they have been very helpful in the past. I’m sure this is also not going to be an exception.
Amazing photos are being shared and after seeing that one more item was added to my to-do list and I dont know when it will get Completed I also have the desire to visit Norway and Iceland and explore the northern lights out there.
