Norwegian fjords are a real natural phenomenon called the pearl of the country. They are located in the northern part of the west coast. To be in Norway and not to look here is the same as losing half a life. Each of the fjords has its own attractions and beauty.
Incredible beauty, forests, lakes, waterfalls, snow-capped mountain tops, and rocks on which clouds sleep. Alpacas graze in the meadows. The houses are so far from each other that any resident here can feel alone in the universe.
In winter there are ski slopes and winter sports lovers come to ski. This part of Norway is wonderful at any time of the year.
In order to fully enjoy the local scenery, there are many tourist routes. For example, they offer fjord cruises on small boats. Of course, most Norwegians live in big cities and here they have a second holiday home. Or they can afford to rent a house and get out here for the weekend. The budget usually allows it. And the budget allows you to have a yacht or boat. There are enough parking places in the water for everyone.
Between the fjords in the rocks laid Laerdal Tunnel which is also one of the longest in the world. Its length is 24.5 km. Thanks to thoughtful safety measures, a trip in the tunnel does not seem boring or scary. The colorful illumination of the grottoes makes it fabulous. We made one of the stops in the center of the tunnel. Thanks to good ventilation, there are no problems with the air, and there are not many cars here.
When the road ends in the rock, you literally understand the expression “light at the end of the tunnel” and it seems painfully bright when leaving. In addition, there are many other tunnels, but they are not large – 3-5 km.
