NorwayNorway in a Nutshell: Flåm to Oslo

On 6 July 2002 from Oslo, Norway , trackback

On 5 July I woke up early and went for a short walk around Flåm. The atmosphere was really cool, quiet and small clouds low in the valley. After the walk I picked up my backpack, and got on the boat the Gudvangen. There I chatted with a couple from South-Africa while watching the breathtaking views in the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. From Gudvangen I took the bus to Voss. It went up a narrow road with lots of hairpin curves, offering amazing view into the Nærøyfjord. Luckily this time the boat and bus were almost empty. Mission: accomplished. In Voss I hiked up Mount Hangur. It took me 1 hour 15 minutes, but at least I saved 8 euro for the cable car and still used it to get down. Of course the top of Mount Hangur offered a great view of Voss and lake Vossevangen. Back down I walked around Voss a bit, and got an early dinner. Then I got on the train to Oslo. Once again the views were really great, going from 1222 metres (Finse) down to sea level (Oslo). And everywhere there were mountains, hills, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, forests and wooden houses. After 6 hours I arrived in Oslo, where I checked in at the hostel and went to sleep.
