Norwegian Fjords June 2015 - Flam.

Our next call was to Flam and once again there is no need for many words. It's all about the scenery.
Photos 1-4 are the approach along the Aurlandsfjord., a branch of the huge Sognefjord.

Once we got there we took a half day sightseeing tour. We went through many tunnels and our guide joked that if a Norse man sees a mountain he has to build a tunnel through it.
It certainly seemed that way.

Photos 5-10 are taken during the tour.

In the distance I could see a statue which I later found out was of the Fridtjov the Bold overlooking Sognefjord.
The statue stands in a country park and was a gift from Emperor Wilhem II in 1913.

I zoomed in but the photo isn't very clear. There is a much better photo in the link above.
