Norway in a Nutshell Photos

Update: there are now more Voss, Naeroyfjord and Flam-Myrdal photos creating a folklorish short story involving a viking family, sleeping waterfalls and a lost quest on the greenygrey.co.uk blog.

I was hoping to do the Norway in a Nutshell tour on my way to Oslo, but found out in Voss tourist info that it can’t be done as part of the train journey from Voss, only on the whole Bergen to Oslo train journey.

Norway in a Nutshell Naeroyfjord

A bus was leaving to start the Nutshell tour outside the station, so I  bought a ticket and was on my way to Norway in a Nutshell, including the steep-sided UNESCO heritage site Naeroyfjord and the steep winding Flam to Myrdal railway line.

Here’s some photos (they don’t really capture the scale of the Naeroyfjord; cars on the road around the fjord looked matchbox sized!):
