Hjelmeland in Ryfylke Norway.I would love to visit someday! This is where my great grandfather immigrated from.

Hjelmeland, Norway. The most beautiful place I have ever been.

Hjelmeland, Rogaland, Western Norway, Norway - City, Town and Village of the world

Skomakarnibbå -The shoemaker's needlepoint- in Hjelmeland. Preikestolen is a walk in the park compared to this hidden plateau. Legend has it that a shoemaker lost a bet with the devil and had to make a pair of shoes while sitting on this rocky outcrop. He got distracted by a wedding procession sailing in the fjord below, lost his balance and fell down into the fjord. It is said that when the Seven Sisters marry, Skomakarnibbå will come crashing down into the fjord.

It is difficult to find words to properly describe Fjord Norway, considered by many to be the world’s best and most diverse destination.
