You cannot go further west in Norway. Travel off the beaten track to the Fjord Coast and get a taste of authentic coastal life.
The landscape of the Fjord Coast has been shaped through thousands of years. Today, the variations in nature, with islands, narrow fjords and white sandy beaches, allow for a large range of activities. Join a fjordcruise or wildlife safari, go diving or fishing, rent a boat, or hike in the mountains. The many islands provide superb conditions for kayaking for both beginners and more experienced kayakers.
Walk to the tops of natural monuments such as Alden, Lihesten or Hornelen – the highest sea cliff in Europe – or opt for one of the many North Sea trails. The combination of ocean, sea and mountain guarantees picture postcard scenery.
One of the best ways to explore the region is by island hopping. Visit Utvær in Solund, Norway’s westernmost island, and see Utvær Lighthouse which has guided ships along the coast for more than 100 years. Take the time to visit Bulandet in Askvoll, Norway’s westernmost active fishing community, located at the edge of the open sea. And a bit further north lies Florø, Norway’s westernmost town. You can travel to and around the Fjord Coast in several ways.
If you enjoy fishing, why not rent a cabin or a large converted boathouses close to the sea? Many cater specifically for sea anglers, with good boats and facilities for preparing and storing the catch. Your hosts will be happy to tell you about the best local fishing spots.
November to February is the high season for storm watching. Feel the wind and watch the waves from a safe distance.
The Vikings were very active in the region and traces from Viking times have been found all along the Fjord Coast, including the Gulating, “the Viking cradle of democracy”. The rock carvings in Vingen and Ausevika are unique in Europe, and the millstone park in Hyllestad presents unique geological features and might soon be on the UNESCO world heritage list.
