06-07-13 to 20-07-13 Älesund to Bergen

Skipper: Marc and Urs

Crew: Annemarie, Christian and Morten

“Forces of Nature”

Our fortnight in the Norwegian fjords was characterized by long
voyages, spectacular landscapes, and pretty much every variation in the weather
you can think of. It didn’t snow at least, although the mountains around us
were capped in it.

After boarding in Älesund, a small crew explored the Hjörunfjord,
Storfjorden and Geirangerfjorden and few days later the journalist and
photographer, Christian Tiedt and Moretn Strauch, from Boote magazine joined
us.

Our target for the next ten days was also the destination for what
seemed to be every cruise ship in Norway.
We would be going to the Nærøyfjord, the narrowest in Europe and the
Sognefjords, the longest, and Nebenfjorde, the deepest at 1308m.  Also we would go to the Auderlandsfjord and
Flåm the water is a kilometre deep, the cliffs 800m high, and mountains tower
above…it promised to be a unique experience.

I don’t want to write too much about the scenery, you can see it in our
photos, at least you could if the weather would have lifted a bit more and let
the mountains show themselves!

Many thanks to the previous crew for their many hints, tips and
contacts.

Marc
