Norway: Sorfjord

Sorfjorden is one of the two innermost inland branches of the Hardangenfjord, it’s 38 long, ending in the town of Odda. It’s a rather narrow fjord with steep mountains covered with snow, especially this early in the season. Further up lie some of the largest glaciers in Norway. Waterfalls cascade down everywhere and Apple orchards covers the lower hills. Half a dozen small villagers of mostly fruit farmers dot the shorelines with tiny houses and picturesque churches, especially against the background of the massive towering fjords walls. And we even found rare northern orchids!
