Top of the World

Photograph by Orsolya Haarberg

Norway's 63,000-mile coastline boasts otherworldly fjords, bays, and islands. Here, the towering peaks of Norway’s Lofoten Islands make Kirkefjorden seem a world unto itself.

We cruised the fjords last summer and got some nice photos, but it looks like the best photos are taken from the top - amazing shots in the story; makes me want to come back to Norway and spend more time.
