On his recent trip through Scandinavia, Senior Web Developer Manhar raised his camera to capture the Go Ahead experience—and the beauty of of the region—on film. Here, he shares some of his favorite shots from each leg of the trip.
Bryggen in Bergen, Norway
This UNESCO-listed wharf is located in the heart of Bergen. My visit allowed me to go back in time and step into one of the oldest parts of the city, which is full of local artists, open dining and lively music. I thought this was the coolest part of Bergen.
Fjord cruise on Nærøyfjord, Norway
This spectacular boat ride took me through one of the steepest and narrowest fjords in the world. The view got better with every turn. I loved seeing waterfalls flowing from the lush mountainside greenery.
Kjosfossen Waterfall in Aurland, Norway
This waterfall is located along the Flåm Railway. I was lucky enough to glimpse an actress dressed as a mythical Huldra from Scandinavian folklore, who performs next to the waterfall in the summer.
Train ride from Bergen to Oslo, Norway
The seven-hour train ride from Bergen to Oslo was stunning. I admired dramatic views of cascading waterfalls and snow-capped mountains as we traveled to 4,000 feet above sea level.
Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen, Denmark
This Renaissance-era castle offered a glimpse into the life of past Danish royalty. I had to snap a photo of this throne, which is said to be made of unicorn horn and is protected against enemies by three silver lions.
Underground subway in Stockholm, Sweden
One of the last places I would expect to be beautiful is a subway. The multi-colored ceiling transformed this underground transportation center and created a dynamic, kaleidoscopic atmosphere.
Gustavianum Museum in Uppsala, Sweden
Uppsala, Sweden’s former capital, is home to many historical gems. I was fascinated by the Gustavianum Museum’s 400-year-old anatomical amphitheater, which was built to perform medical dissections.
