Our initial plan was to hike up to Trolltunga, and we even completed a figment of the hike (though the toughest part), but then our preparations were not good enough for the weather and marshy conditions there, so we decided to keep it for the next trip.
Disappointed, we arrived at our cabin in Jondal. Turns out our host worked with a skiing company, so when he got to know about our failed hike, he suggested us to go to a glacier nearby where he takes people for skiing, turns out, this was Norway’s third largest Glacier – Folgefonna.
What will you find most in Norwegian countryside – sheep, all around, and they all have names.
The Norwegian Goodbye – Skies
We arrived at Atlantic road quite early on our last day, and now we had to drive continously for around 1000 kilometers all night to reach Stockholm next day. Since we were already driving this much, we decided to take a little detour to a village called Hessdalen famous for a unique thing. We didn’t get to see that, but when we were returning from there, we suddenly noticed that it was so dark there that we could see the milky way.
Now as we started moving, one of my friends noticed something green in the sky, and then it kept getting greener. Yeah, we saw the northern lights, and not for few minutes, they were there for more than 4 hours.
And that’s how Norway happily bid us goodbye and we came back home with zillions of unforgettable memories and an awesome experience.
