Norway's lunar-like mountain-scapes and deep fjords were shaped by glaciers that covered most of the Continent 10,000 years ago. Rivers of ice like this carved huge valleys creating the defining feature of Norway's landscape — the fjords. And the visual highlight of this ride, Nærøyfjord is ten miles long and breathtakingly narrow — as little as 800 feet wide. Man: Long way down. Romantic painters and writers were inspired by the mountains plunging into the fjords and by the dramatic light.
