This was the main reason for this cruise was our last visit up to the North Cape didn't call here.
Our arrival up the majestic fjord was very special and after the ship spun around in its own length to dock those passengers booked on a shore excursions left the ship.
We both wanted to ride the railway up to the top of the mountain to view the extraordinary scenery in the high peaks. The train is the local means of transport up to join the main Oslo to Bergen railway.
The train trip met expectations as each special carriage for cruise passengers had its own guide/interpreter to explain the construction methods used on the railway and other points of interest on the route.
After coffee and waffles at the hotel in the mountains and a walk in the snow fields surrounding the area we returned by train to the ship in time for lunch.
The afternoon was spent sunbathing and admiring the scenery.
