“My family and I went on a beautiful cruise to Norway in May 2019. I didn’t keep a journal like I did for our holiday in Italy but I still have the beautiful pictures and experiences to share with you!
We travelled from Newcastle and after travelling for roughly 36 hours and 548 miles, we made it into Norwegian territory. We first visited Bergen.” – Part 1.
We also visited…
This small village is located on the shore of the Eid Fjord, an inner branch of the large Hardangerfjorden which connects other villages such as Ulvik and Brimnes.
We were here briefly because we were going to be visiting a cider farm a 35 minute from Eidfjord.
Juice and Sider Factory – Lekve Gard, Ulvik.
Sider, not a typo but translated form their official website: Hardanger Saft- og Siderfabrikk.
We were given a tour of the place and a taster session alongside a history of making the alcohol and where their ingredients came from.
A truly amazing bridge…
On the way home we had to drive on the Worlds longest suspension bridge, it has room for both cyclists and pedestrians so no matter which mode of transport you choose, you can still enjoy how beautiful this bridge is.
The bridge is 1380 metres long, which translated to feet is 4527 long.
This bridge connects to the Bu Tunnel which actually has a roundabout within the tunnel, and in total from start to finish the tunnels length equals to 7,510-metre, 24,640 ft, 4.67 miles long.
I never thought I would be writing about a tunnel and bridge before on my blog but here we are haha.
The roundabout was added to the tunnel in 2013, 28 years after the tunnel was originally opened.
