Northern Europe Wonders

Fjords & the Preikestolen cliff

Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) is one of Norway’s most visited attractions, and is one of the natural wonders of Norway, making it a popular photo subject. It rises 604 metres above the Lysefjord, a 40 km long classic Norwegian fjord. Views of Lysefjord from Preikestolen’s summit are panoramic.

We hiked up an additional 10 minutes to capture the entire Preikestolen Cliff and fjord below.

We visited Preikestolen cliff and the Norwegian Fjords in 2012 as part of our Scandinavia & Russia trip.

Jökulsarlon Lagoon

Jökulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is located in Southeast Iceland, a truly a unique place.  There is black sand beaches, waterfalls, glaciers, diamond beach and more. You can see the floating icebergs on the glacier lagoon and can even take a boat ride on the lagoon and sail around the icebergs.

Where can one find blocks of ice on a beach?

We visited Jökulsarlon Lagoon in 2013.
