As promised part two of our unforgettable few days in Norway.
We decided we need to see more of the area around Flåm and Elfreda and Anton organised us a renrtal to go and explore on our own.
We were greeted with spectacular views soon after we left Flåm.
We left the scenic fjords and were soon in high country with quite a chill in the air.
A completely different kind of beautifull greeted us.
Found these restrooms that were completely off the grid.
We dropped down from the harsh highlands to a lush green area that made you feel to pack up everything, buy a fix me upper and move there.
We were back in civilisation after a most spectacular drive through the countryside, and had some nice coffee and cake.
We drove through the longest tunnel in Norway and definitely the longest one I have ever been in. It is called the Laerdal tunnel.

Exiting the tunnel we found ourselves back in Flåm where we needed to catch the train back to Bergen.
The Flamsbana does not claim to be one of the most beautiful train rides in the world without a reason.
It is also one of the steepest railways in the world, winding through 20 tunnels and making a brief stop at the Kjosfossen waterfall.
With our time running out in Norway we tried to soak in and explore as much as possible before catching the plane back to Copenhagen.
We had time for a last sightseeing experience when we went with a cableway up a mountain.
The views were stunning after which we walked back to our hotel to catch a taxi and the plane.
Norway was without a doubt the highlight of our trip for me and it stays on my bucketlist to revisit instead of ticking it off.
In an unexpected turn of events we visit another country before we head back to SA, but more about that later.
