Another cool place in Norway - Nigardsbreen

this is a glacier where you can have hikes on - this is really cool - we took the easiest walk (well not the easiest - the easiest is the family tour but we took the one after that) so we got to wear ice boots with the spikes and all kind of cool gear and we were tied to each other by a rope (like 8 people on a tour) and we just walked up the glacier.

it was a crappy day - was raining all the time but somehow we didn't even notice the rain since it was so amazing

defiantly worth a visit

So the trip was amazing
we started in Stockholm - we were there for like a day and a half, we stayed in this really col hotel (nordic light) and went to the icebar at the nordic sea across the street.

Stockholm is really nice - i love it

Then we took the car and drove to Oslo - its kinda ugly but the park with all the sculptures is really nice.

Then we drove to Flam, which is a nice fjord and we took the fjord safari which was nice.

then we drove all the way to the atlantic road which was nice and trollstigen which was cool, then we arrived to Geiranger fjord which was amazing but it was rainy and cloudy.

so we decided to go to bergen which was beautiful and then we heard the weather will be great at geiranger so we drove 7 hours back - it was amazing

Then we drove to bergen back and fly home :-)

it was great
