In this book Johs. B. Thue invites you to join him on his voyage on the express boat from Bergen northwards along the coastline before speeding east into the Sognefjord itself. There you can become acquainted with modern industrial towns, isolated hamlets, and vertical mountainsides. He would also like to show you stave churches and fairy-tale hotel buildings, and also give you the chance to taste local traditional food. Through seven richly illustrated chapters the writer shares with you his subjective travel experiences from personal, local, and historical perspectives.
