The main fjords of Norway

    Norwegian fjords

    The Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord

    These two arms of the Sognefjord are both beautiful and dramatic. The Nærøyfjord is included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

    The Lysefjord

    The Lysefjord is situated close to Stavanger, and is especially known for the mountain formations of Kjerag and Preikestolen (The Pulpit Rock).

    The Sognefjord

    Norway’s longest and deepest fjord extends inland to the national parks of Jotunheimen and Jostedalsbreen.

    The Hardangerfjord

    The Hardangerfjord, not far from Bergen, is especially known for fruit tree blossoming in spring, Folgefonna Glacier and Vøringsfossen Waterfall.

    The Geirangerfjord

    The deep blue UNESCO-protected Geirangerfjord is surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and lush, green vegetation.

    The Romsdalsfjord

    The Romsdalsfjord is located close to the city of Molde. Take the Raumabanen Railway from the fjord to the mountains, or go on a fjord cruise.

    The Nordfjord
