Reasons for trip

One of the beautiful little towns we visited on our Norwegian cruise was Flam. The cruise ship had amazingly navigated the fjord, and had moored close to "fjord safari ribs" I had done very little research about the cruise due to the fact it was a very late deal, but one place I'd looked at was flam. I'd loved the idea of speeding up the fjords, experiencing them from a tiny vessel, and being able to go to remote places, so I'd booked up for my husband and I on the rib 2hour experience. We were given warm floatation suits, goggles, hat and gloves to help combat the cold when whiz zing through the fjords. We climbed on board into comfortable bucket seats ready for our adventure! The surrounding mountains towered above us, their feet deep into the waters below. Trees clung onto the sides, the scenery was stunning. The waters were clear and fresh, and as the rib traversed through it , a wake was formed behind. The Norwegian lad, who was our guide and driver, drove with confidence, and knew how to fill the expedition with fun. He was also very knowledgeable about the local area, he actually lived in the next village! Every so often he would bring the boat to a stop to point out shepherds huts, mountain goats, amazing waterfalls, eagles, seals; the list is endless! I can really say that this way of seeing Norway was fantastic. You were able to see tiny villages that could only be reached by boat, breath in the cool fresh air and really feel invigorated. Wow! Thoroughly recommended even for oldies like us!
