ALESUND, NORWAY

Ålesund’s  beauty would be hard to surpass. It is called the most beautiful fjord city.  A city walk and shopping is a must to feel its culture.


MOLDE, NORWAY

Molde is another beautiful Fjord City.with heaps of charm and atmosphere. You may feel like you are walking into a fairytale. Look out for Trolls! Everywhere you turn is another beautiful view.


One of the best experiences in the world is cruising a fjord. The Sognefjord is called the King of the fjords for a good reason: it is the longest fjord in Norway and the second-longest in the world. The Sognefjorden is enveloped with exceptional natural beauty, tall mountains, waterfalls, and scenic forests.

BENBOW FARM & STONEHENGE
Hill Farm and Benbow’s Pond was originally the homestead of John and Jane Benbow who played a pivotal role in the conversion and baptism of all but one of the 600 members of the United Brethren's congregation.

Nordfjord is formed from blue glaciers with  majestic mountains on either side, and sprinkled with fertile valleys and deep lakes. The glaciers, fjords, sea and mountains in Nordfjord are some of the most beautiful that Norwegian nature has to offer.

The London England Temple

Located in rural England, the London England Temple became the 12th operating temple after it was dedicated by President David O. McKay on September 7, 1958. The temple is actually not located in London, but in Newchapel, Surrey, England, which is 25 miles south of London. It was the first temple in the United Kingdom and the second temple dedicated in Europe.

Several buildings share the temple site, including a three-story, 40-room Elizabethan-style mansion—known as the Manor House. Visitors to the temple grounds enjoy a large pond that creates inspiring reflections of the temple both during the day and at night. The grounds include 10 acres of formal gardens with nearly 7,000 plants planted yearly. There are many beautiful varieties of trees and plants on the site! In fact, a replica of the Sacred Grove found in Palmyra New York was created on the temple grounds.
