Norway’s beauty is unparalleled. The Hot Glass Demo at Sea on the Celebrity Eclipse visited several Norwegian ports where travelers could explore city life at places such as Stavanger, Ålesund, and Bergen, while other ports, like Geiranger and Flåm, brought you straight to nature’s doorstep. Our Hot Glass Team took every opportunity we could to get lost in these amazing landscapes (okay, not literally).
Geiranger has a quaint town center with a magnificent waterfall, just a short, accessible walk down the road. You don’t have to travel far to see this powerful body of water or feel its icy mist. However, stemming from this point are many trails through the mossy green forests, working their way up to greater sights and expansive views. Just past the visitor center of this World Heritage site, we found a trail map that set us on the right path with the time we had. We decided to set out for Storsæterfossen, a waterfall that had a foot path build into the rock underneath it. The hike up was moderate but long, as most of it was on the road to reach the actual trailhead. Walking underneath this massive waterfall, you never knew you could feel so alive. It was stunning! Despite the cold, the dampness, and the hour-long downpour as we headed back down to sea level, the adventure well out-weighed the wet Norwegian weather! Read more →
