Geirangerfjorden, Norway.

Not everyone would agree, but I must say it is one of the most scenic places I've ever seen.

Wonder if people actually live in the shacks in the second photo. What an incredible place to live that would be....

And those look like full-size cruise ships in the first photo. Which means that that fjord is much larger than I thought upon first glance.

Pretty unbelievable...

I think Trinidad should rank up there somewhere.
And the southern part of Germany
and the Pacific northwest of the US.

I would love to do three things there:
1) Take a nice and slow helocopter tour
2) Take a boat tour
3) Fly an F-16 with the throttle to the firewall @ no more then 100m.

Yep - it's actually even more vivid blue than this picture indicates. I can only describe it as "electric blue" - like someone plugged the whole lake into a 240 volt outlet. Stunningly, amazingly beautiful.

Of course you know that the person who designed the fijords of Norway won a gold medal for doing so. It's in The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

As for beautiful places which are also relatively accessible, I'm voting for Murren, Switzerland. Stunning.
