Photographer's Note

Aurlandsvangen town had about 777 people in 2013, one year before this was taken. As you can see from

this wide angled view, flat land is at a premium in this part of Norway so houses are terraced into the hillsides.

Aurlandsvangen is on the scenic 'Norway in a nutshell' tour departing from Oslo and heading to Flam, then Aurlandsvangen, Undredal on Aurlandsfjorden (part of the Sognefjord Fjord, the 2nd longest in the world, and the largest and deepest in Norway), then on to Gudvangen, Voss and Bergen. You can choose to return by bus to Oslo or stay in Bergen. I chose the latter.

Out of interest, I checked the statistics:

1st Scoresby Sund in Greenland - 350 km (220 mi)
2nd Sognefjord in Norway - 203 km (126 mi)
3rd Hardangerfjord in Norway - 179 km (111 mi)
