Description

The Finnafjord is one of the smallest branches of the Sognefjord, but definitely one of the most beautiful ones. The only way to reach it is by boat. At Finden, a sound has to be passed on the way in to Finnabotn, with its steep and high mountain sides.

At the narrow sound at Finden, you can get a practical demonstration f how a fjord system functions with the passing tidal currents. Synnøve Finden, one of the most famous Norwegian cheese producers, was born and raised here.

Today, the Finden family still runs the farm and combines this with accommodation and the service of food and drink for tourists. In Finnabotn, you find the guest house Findebotten Gjestehus, with accommodation and food & drink.
