Following our train ride in Flam, we were off to our private ferry across the Sognesfjord. It started rainy and cold but as the day progressed it cleared up into beautiful clouds hanging low over the fjord. We had hot chocolate and watched the beautiful scenery pass by.
Nathan enjoyed his position at the front of the boat. Unrelated- there were also so many beautiful waterfalls to watch as we went by.
I lucked out for the next photograph as the Norwegian on the boat caught a breeze and blew into the photograph.
Just as we thought this private ferry ride just for our group could not get better we spotted a family of porpoises playing along side the boat. They were all over the area and they were playful. Then there was a perfect rainbow!
From there we went to the Norwegian glacier museum. In addition to liking adventures, my dad studied geology. I am well versed on subject of glaciers. Throughout the trip he supplemented the guides with extra geology instruction for members of the group who were interested. It was a great way to start out our trek through the wild north of Norway!
