Fjords of Norway (Norway)

Fjords are long and narrow sea inlets with high steeply sloped walled sides, cut when the ocean floods a valley previously inhabited a glacier. The seeds of a fjord are laid when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley through a process known as abrasion, where rocks and sediment carried by the glacier erode away the surrounding bedrock. Usually fjords follow the path of a pre-glacial river valley, or in some cases a fault related to tectonic activity.

Ik heb heel wat van de wereld gezien. Als gewone toerist blijft voor mij Noorwegen met z'n fjords het mooiste en Oost Turkye het interessantste.
