Destination: Afjorden, Norway


The sheer scale of the Norwegian fjordlands is really unlike anything I've ever seen. We stayed on the Giil family farm located one fjord over from the longest fjord in the world, Sognefjorden.

Photos from our hike up a 2000+ ft mountain (Lifjellet) that rises out of Afjorden are here. If you're curious about more of Norway (fjordlands, Oslo and Bergen) try here.

Ron, my friend Randy Gill's Great Grandfather was Alfred Martin Gill (previously Sorenson) who came from Giil farm. He is very much interested in finding out more information about the area, the circumstances around his G-Gfathers leaving Norway for the US in 1906 (originally to South Dakota, then to Oregon) at age 19.
