This was probably one of the biggest gifts I personally got on our trip across the Nordics with Scandic and I will explain why later on. I don’t think even Scandic realised it at the time  – I definitely didn’t) but before all that, let’s cover everything you need to know about getting to Pulpit Rock and the Lysefjord. … Continue Reading

I have raved over and over again about how amazing taking the train from Bergen to Flam (home of one of Norway’s majestic, UNESCO World Heritage Fjords) is and I finally have evidence of it! It’s easily the most amazing train ride I’ve been on and one that totally turned my perception of train journeys … Continue Reading
