    The ski trip into the Norwegian fjords around Romsdalen is a world-class experience.

Thousands of fjords ranging from a few hundred meters to over 100 kilometers make up the coast of Norway. After having been there, we saw just enough to realize that the skiing possibilities are just about endless.
