Sailing into Bergen

Having never been to Norway we were quite excited about our arrival in Bergen. We had heard so much about its beauty and of course its reputation as the gateway to the Norwegian Fjords. Bergen also has a long and storied history since its founding in 1070 AD.

However, today we post not about its history but more about its beauty.  Our first introduction to this beautiful place was as we sailed into her harbour and experienced some breathtaking views and wonderfully coloured cottages and homes. We were arriving early in the morning and a slight haze remained in the air and across the water which added to the overall beauty.  Enough of my chatter, enjoy some gorgeous views, but I have to say the pictures do not do the justice that this journey deserves.
