Norway and it’s amazing Fjords
Hello all, it has been a while since my last post, I have been very busy and neglected the blog for a while, hopefully I’ll have time to post more often.
This post is dedicated to the Fjords in Norway, it is a country I have been longing to visit, my mom lives there and I haven’t been able to visit yet, she is always talking about how gorgeous the scenery is, North, South, East, West, it doesn’t matter where you go, you will find beauty everywhere and I can totally see by the pictures she shares with me, there are many places worth having their own post, that’s why I wanted to focus on the Fjords this time.
So what are they? Fjords are deep, long and narrow inlets that have been carved by glacier movement during the ice age, once the glacier retreats the floor is filled with sea water, they are u shaped, are not connected to rivers or streams but can be several miles long. Norway is the country with most Fjords in the world, Iceland, Alaska, Greenland, Chile and New Zealand also have notable Fjords.
The most known Fjords in Norway are Romsdalsfjord and Nordfjord in the North; Geirangerfjord and Lysefjord in the South West; Sognefjord, Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord in the South and Hardangerfjord in the West close to Bergen with the most popular tourist locations being Kjeragbolten (a round rock wedged solidly in a mountain fissure) and Preikestolen or better known as The Pulpit Rock ( a flat mountain plateau).
Enjoy the pictures.
