It was busy vacation this year. Many long and short trips. Big part to the north direction, including Molde and Atlantic Ocean Road. Second part, much shorter to the south of Bergen. Trip around Lysefjorden including Preikestolen and Lysebotn. And finally the third part, just one day trip to Juklavatnet with nice view to Folgefonna Glacier. I am so glad, and I have a lot nice pictures to upload for the rest of this year.
Jostedalsbreen Nationa Park
It was the first step of my longest trip. I visited small part of this nice place last year. It was only the Nigardsbreen. Place permanently occupied by tourists. Crazy, for someone like me, who like to be in quiet habitat, close to the nature. Jostedalsbreen National Park is not only the one, and most popular glacier. The maps showed many possibilities to reach. If the Nigardsbreen attracts hundreds tourists every day, the beautiful post glacier lake Styggevatnet attract just few. The distance between this places is aroun 24 kilometers, by the good road through the valley. For me was not enough to take walk on damn and back, I was walking round the lake, almost to the glacier. Difficult, but amazing walk. Close to the post glacier nature and in silent. The only sound was wind and water flowing from melting snow and ice. I spent in this place two days with big satisfaction about everything I saw. If someone will be close to this place, I recommend to visit. Below I present for You, just few pictures I taken in this place and close around. Enjoy and have fun.
Places like this, close to the big tourist attraction and visited by few is much more in Norway. Later I will write about some other.
Another one, one day trip to Odda.
Crazy summer. The second wettest summer in Norway. The rain starts in June, and during the summer was rainy almost everyday. Wet. So, sometimes the weather give us some break. And it was in this weekend. Almost whole day without rain. Nice day for the trip. One day trip to Odda. Odda valley, most know like the waterfall valley, was so crazy this time. The power of all the waterfalls gives the thrill. I like this small town. I like to watch all the people from whole world who came here and waiting for transport to the start point, to climb on Troltunga. Many different people and many different clothes. Easy to see the experienced travelers and completely amateurs without any equipment or even without enough good shoes. Crazy people.
This was lazy trip with many stops. The picture below was taken from one of the place I ever stop. Exactly on other side of this mountain is the city Odda. I love this view. And here is always quiet. Nice to eat some breakfast with the view like this. It taste better. I hope you will also like this nice view. I have pictures from here taken on every kind of weather, in every season. And the majesty mountain is always beautiful.
Some pictures from the waterfalls I will present later. Not everything is ready yet.
I wish myself the autumn season to be much better than the summer. A lot of place to visit. I have a lot of plans. The end of this week from Thursday I will spend partialy in Jotunheim National Park. Forecast is good, so I hope to bring back a lot of nice pictures for you.
