Before embarking one of the Hurtigruten ships we spent a week in a typically Norwegian house by one of the furthest branches of the Sognefjorden by Marifjøra, making trips around the area. However, the gallery of pictures includes also our trip via Oslo up there, impressions of Bergen as the start and end point of the Hurtigruten voyage as well as our trip back to Oslo through Hardangervidda.

Two hikes by foot in excellent sunny weather (the very end of September!) are treated separately.
- Molden, an unsurprising mountain with a superb round view over the area of Sognefjorden and its surroundings. Situated just above our hired house, an obvious choice for a sunny day.

- Austerdalsbreen, a side glacier of the mighty and huge Jostedalsbreen, hidden at the very end of Austerdalen, about an hour nice drive on narrow and partially gravel roads from the house.
