Sognefjorden

 

The world’s longest fjord adventure, the Sognefjord, lies in the heart of the Norwegian fjord country and extends more than 200 km (120 miles) inland. The region where this deep fjord meets the glaciers and Norway’s highest mountains is considered one of the world's most beautiful travel destinations.

In this area you will find the dramatic Nærøyfjord, the famous National parks of Jotunheimen and Jostedalsbreen, several of the highest waterfalls in Norway, five of Norway's oldest stave churches and idyllic fjord communities with small picturesque village centres.

You can explore the fjord all year round, whether you come by express boat from Bergen or are traveling on a passenger boat or a car ferry. Paddling a kayak beneath really steep mountain sides with cascading waterfalls or between icebergs on the turquoise water of glacier lakes is a unique way to experience nature. You can also look at the fjord from one of the mountain tops surrounding the fjord, for example "The snow road" - the mountain road between Aurland and Lærdal.
