We sailed up mor beautiful fjords early this morning on our way to Olden. The main reason for this stop; jumping off point for various glacier tours. Having both done a few of these before as well as flown over more than my share to and from Bødo back when I was fortunate enough to do winter NATO exercises… Yes seriously, as visiting military they were a lot of fun and the Nords have absolutely great winter field gear.

Where was I ? Oh yes, not mucking about on the bus or glaciers (Kjenndalen. Briksdalen) in the rain. Unfortunately, it also means that I missed out on the chance to ride in the Troll Cars. If anyone in the group comes up with good pictures I will share.

Meanwhile, the ship appears huge. The river is ice cold which is not a surprise considering it is glacier run off. And hiking is at ones own risk.
