Rocks and Landscapes along the Coast of Norway

I was inspired to write this page after a spectacular journey with Hurtigruten: the coastal voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes in early March 2020 on MS Nordnorge.

The idea of this site is to give the interested, non-specialist reader some further information on the geology and landscapes you will see during this voyage, by pointing you to relevant sources of information.

A good place to start is the excellent book The Making of a Land - Geology of Norway. You will find a copy of this lavishly illustrated 'coffee table' book in the Science Centre library on MS Maud. Preview in Google Books. Chapter 2 gives a good general introduction to geology, using examples from Norway.
