The Scenery -Fjords

Cruising the Norwegian fjords was truly stunning. We had cruised the inside passage of British Columbia on our own boat earlier in the spring but the BC fjords don't seem as deep or dramatic as here in Norway.

One thing that was similar was the weather, lots of clouds and rain. Here are some photos from the fjords.

2007-Europe-035 Norway fjords have neat and tasteful farms rather than clearcuts as in BC.

2007-Europe-155 The weather was similar in Norway and BC, lots of rain! 




2007-Europe-063 The towns in the fjords are too small to dock a cruise ship so they anchor out and passengers tender to shore
