July in the Nordic Visitor office was all about Norway. We blogged, Facebooked, Tweeted and Instagrammed our love for all things Norway. But all the words typed and praises sung just can't hold a candle to the incredible shot we've chosen as our Nordic Photo of the Month, snapped by Andreas Leidenfrost during a Geirangerfjord & Majestic Railways honeymoon with his wife, Michelle.
The winning photo, titled "Almost There," is heading up this post and is the cover image of our Facebook page for the month, but scroll on for some more photos from Andreas and Michelle.
Says Andreas of the trip's highlights: "There were so many... The hike that is pictured in the photos is one of the biggest highlights. Driving through the stunningly beautiful Norwegian countryside was quite an experience as well; there are lush fields everywhere and everything is so green."
An adventure all their own: "I read about how famous the Romsdalseggen Ridge hike was and really wanted to do it, so Nordic Visitor customized our tour for us. We spent an extra night in Andalsnes just so we could do this hike. We also rented a car in Alesund because I wanted to drive the Atlantic Road."
Says Andreas: "We are both very avid backpackers and try to get out as much as we can. I love nothing better than climbing mountains. It was a dream come true to be able to go hiking in Norway."
GOOD TO KNOW: Nordic Visitor has packages to get you through and around Norway in a number of ways. From self-drive packages, to scenic rail journeys, or charming coastal cruises; there's really no one best way to experience this incredible country! And, as we did for Andreas and Michelle, we can customize an itinerary to suit your own interests.
