    Re: This is Geiranger

    It looks very much like ice, doesn't it, especially in the pier photo? There is not the clarity you would expect from still water. What do you think, Ombugge?

      I understand it has been a long cold spell and with no snow. Several of the smaller and shallower fjords has apparently frozen to where it is possible to walk, or skate on them.
      Anybody who can confirm this???

        The only fjord I know about is the wide Trondheimsfjord: no ice, no skating!

          The new Seawalk in Geiranger in folded condition:


          Looks like it will block direct access to the Tender piers when in use.
          Will see what it looks like when in use later.

            Diving in Geiranger in mid-winter may not be everybody's hobby: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article9320503.ece#12

            The snow limit appears to be where it should be in early May, not March.

                It has been VERY quiet on this thread for a long time. Time to wake it up.
                Anybody would like to visit the sights in Geiranger in a Limo and with Champagne to slack your thirst?
                Well, it is fully possible: http://www.visitmr.com/index.php?page_id=2092

                  18. juli kan turistane få flotte fotomotiv i Geiranger, når dei tre seglskutene «Sørlandet», «Statsraad Lehmkul» og «Christian Radich» ankrar opp.
                  Will there be any CVF members there to bring pictures to us??

                    I can promise you several pictures of the ones mentioned..., possibly not from Geiranger, but rather Ålesund. ;-)

                    Ålesund is a host harbour for Tall Ships Race 2015, so there will be more than enough masts and beautiful sailships to photograph, although I admit to agree that seeing those three swans in Geiranger at the same time will look rather spectacular...

                          What a nice addition to the traffic chaos already in Geiranger!

                        Geiranger is open for business: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article10951608.ece

                        If you like to see how they clear the road across the mountain, there is a video included.

                            Geiranger as few have seen it with their own eyes:




                            Including me I must add.

                            PS> By the way, it is NOT B&W pictures, in case you wondered.
