From a color to another

According to an ancient legend, the name would come from the Old Norse Norðrvegr, which means The way to the north. Named because the long, cut-out coastline was usually ice-free in winter. In autumn, the coastline passes from one season to another, the landscape is colored with gold and the temperature drops slowly throughout the month of September.

The ferry crossing from Hirtshals (Denmark) to Bergen (Norway) will take 19 hours.
