Main port photo for Eidfjord, Norway

The Romantic Movement in literature and music changed the way Europeans experienced Nature. Nature was no longer an anarchic force to be conquered, but rather a source of beauty and inspiration. The result was the birth of the Scenic and the inception of tourism. European high society flocked to Norway's fjord country as early as the 1820s, and by 1875, Thomas Cook was offering summer cruises along the Eidfjord to Victorian England. Now as then, the allure remains the juxtaposition of the still, deep waters of the fjord framed by soaring cliffs and majestic waterfalls. Eidfjord is also a gateway to the Hardangervidda, Norway's largest national park.
