2013 02 16 - Flam-Myrdal, Norway

2013 02 16 - Flam-Myrdal, Norway, a set on Flickr. These are my photos from the 'Norway in a Nutshell' tour I took yesterday - you travel by train and bus to Gundvangen, at the head of a narrow Fjord, then a two-hour ferry ride to Flam, the base of the famous railroad. It climbs 866 meters to Myrdal (which in winter is completely closed and empty, but beautiful). It's a two-hour train ride back to Bergen.
