Breathe in. Breathe out.

Relax while you take in this million-dollar view for free.

With countless peaks and ice-blue waters, nature is the main attraction in the Nordfjord area of Fjord Norway.

The most well-known face from this region is this guy: the fjord horse.

Saddle up and explore Nordfjord with the world’s cutest tour guide. That will give you a soft start to your adventures here …

… before you put on your hiking boots and head for the clouds.

There are so many scenic hiking trails – too many for us to list them all. Still, a few of them are more popular than others. Check out the storm watching cabin Dosabu (film), Skåla and Lodalskåpa.

You can even hike up Europe’s highest sea cliff, Hornelen, or climb up the 860 metres in the Hornelen Via Ferrata!

But don’t worry, you don’t have to wear yourself out to get a good view. In Loen, you can hitch a ride with Loen Skylift to Mount Hoven.

Walk around at the top, eat delicious food, and enjoy the view of the valleys Oldedalen and Lodalen.

If you prefer something more challenging, make your way up the mountain along Via Ferrata Loen.

Highlights include a zipline and a suspension bridge that soars 750 metres above sea level. If that doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, what will?

Just as wild and impressive is the forces of nature. Feel the power of water on a surfing trip to Hoddevik and Ervik by the Stad peninsula.

Here, there’s not much stopping the waves as they make their way towards the beach from the rough open sea just off the coast. You see, Stad is only a short drive from Norway’s westernmost point, Vestkapp. From there, it is ocean as far as the eye can see.

Water can also be pretty cool when frozen, especially when it’s been like that for thousands of years.

See it for yourself as you join a guided walk on one of the glaciers in the Jostedalsbreen national park. Fun fact: it’s meltwater from the glaciers and the snow that gives the lakes Oldevatnet and Lovatnet their beautiful emerald green colour.

But not all of it melts. In fact, at Stryn summer ski centre you can go skiing in June! That will give you an idea of what it would be like to go ski touring in winter.

The mountains are also quite spectacular on two wheels.

Try mountain biking in Gloppen and feel butterflies in your stomach as you make your way down towards the fjord.

But don’t forget to rest.

Book a spa visit at Hotell Alexandra or treat yourself to gourmet food at a local restaurant. From seafood to wild flavours – you’ll not be disappointed.

Wait a minute. This looks like the Mediterranean …?

Well, if you bring a Strawberry daiquiri, a sun hat and sunblock, the Grotlesanden beach in Bremanger will resemble a tropical paradise – minus the palm trees and the warm water.

There’s also a lovely beach in Selje, where you can combine a lazy day by the sea with a boat trip to the historic Selje Kloster.

If you’re a fan of history and Vikings, a trip to Sagastad in Nordfjordeid is a must.

Here, you can admire the craftsmanship behind the 30-metre-long Myklebust ship, one of the world’s largest Viking ships, and get insights into the era that sparked our fascination with shipbuilding and seafaring.

Nordfjord offers relaxing days and adrenaline-filled adventures – and everything in between.
