Wonder at the Nærøyfjord, the wildest and most beautiful arm of the Sognefjord. Along with the Geirangerfjord, 75 miles away – natural beauty has never looked as magnificent and spectacular as this.
Waterfalls are at their most dramatic throughout Fjord Norway – for sheer spectacle, the Seven Sisters of Geirangerfjord is unmissable. You can actually walk below and behind the nearby Storseterfossen falls.
Enjoy lazy days on one of Norway’s finest unspoilt beaches on the island of Stokkoya, a stunning archipelago north-west of Trondheim. Sensational mountain views vie with the tranquil seascape.
Seals and sea eagles prey upon the fish among the 5,400 islets and skerries off Frøya, the outermost island off the coast of Trøndelag. Nature at its wildest!
Marvel at the giant slab of rock protruding 1,200ft above the beautiful fjord landscape of Ringedal Lake. One of the most astonishing places to visit in Norway.
An unmissable spectacle is the unique Stegastein viewing platform and its breathtaking views 2,000ft above the Aurlandsfjord. Don’t forget to stop for a spot of fishing in the surrounding mountains.
For a truly jawdropping experience, hike to Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen), a plateau that gives epic views of the whole 25-mile long Lysefjord from a height of 2,000ft. On a clear day you can see for ever!
You won’t believe the Kannestein Rock on the island of Vågsøy, eroded by the crashing ocean waves, which looks like a giant mushroom, a giant goblet on its stem or a mermaid’s chair depending on your imagination.
The highest vertical mountain wall in Europe is Trollveggen (Troll Wall), near Åndalsnes. Not conquered until 1965 – there are now 14 routes for climbers – you may just prefer to gaze upwards in awe!
Some call the Flåm Railway the most beautiful and spectacular railway journey in the world – you’ll weave your way through magical fjords, majestic mountains and foaming waterfalls. Breathtaking!
