The western part of Norway is also home to the iconic fjords. See the mountains and waterfalls cascade down to the green-blue water.
The most famous ones are the world heritage listed Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord, the Hardangerfjord and Nordfjord, and the 205 kilometres long Sognefjord. But you will also love the less-visited fjords. The region has hundreds of them!
They are beautiful in summer …
… but even more stunning in spring, when the hills are filled with colourful flowers in the orchards.
Or in autumn, when the trees are covered in red, orange, and yellow leaves.
Explore the fjords in all their serenity from water level in a kayak or on a boat trip …
… or put on your hiking boots for an active day full of sweeping views. You can find great hikes almost everywhere in Fjord Norway.
Some of them are tough, even for experienced hikers. Other treks are both short and easy – and equally stunning.
In winter, you can ski down the mountainsides – all the way to the fjords. Yiiihaaa!
Fjord Norway has excellent ski resorts where you find everything from challenging off-piste skiing to family-friendly slopes, like Stranda, Sogndal, Myrkdalen, and Voss. On some glaciers, you can even go summer skiing.
Of course, driving roads like these takes time. Fjord Norway is much larger than it looks on the map, so stay for a few weeks – or concentrate on one part of the region.
The outer coastline is an adventure in itself, full of fascinating islands, like Grip. Here, many houses were washed out to sea in 1804, but they were rebuilt since the island is an important fishing community.
Fjord Norway is also a region of beautiful towns.
For many tourists, Bergen is the natural starting point. As a former Norwegian capital and Hanseatic city, it’s full of historical treasures like Bryggen – and a vibrating cultural scene with theatres, concerts and festival year-round.
