The Sunnfjord area is a mix of active holiday in diverse and unspoilt nature, attractions like a viewing point of unseen architecture, and compact urban charm.
You will find Sunnfjord ideally situated halfway between the major cities of Bergen and Ålesund, bordering to the Sognefjord area in the south and Nordjord in the north.
Take your pick amongst the many possible highlights of your vacation, or just kick-start it by participating in an exotic glacier hike at Haugabreen. Other activities include kayaking, rafting, hiking, and guided tours. In Jølster, you can in fact get your very own fishing guide to show you the best spots for catching trout. In the winter, the mountainous landscapes of Sunnfjord are great for most types of skiing. Just remember to familiarise yourself with the mountain code beforehand.
Drive to Utsikten viewpoint, an attraction at the National Tourist Route Gaularfjellet. Here, raw nature is combined with dazzling forms signed by the recognised Code Architecture.
The Sunnfjord area is often called “the home of waterfalls” because of the numerous places where water cascades off the steep mountain sides and splashes into Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, the Sognefjord.
Inhale cultural input at sites like Sogn & Fjordane Art Museum, the open air Sunnfjord museum with its 25 historical buildings, or at concerts and other events at Astruptunet and Villa Aamot. In Sunnfjord, history buffs will also find pleasure in visiting Viking and medieval sites.
Be sure to taste local delicacies produced by food enthusiast like the traditional Naustdal dampbakeri in the city of Førde. In July every year since 1990, the Førdefestivalen is a multicultural musical event that is highly popular amongst both locals and travellers.
In Førde you will find most of the services you expect from a modern city. The accommodation offers in Førde and the rest of the Sunnfjord area are as varied as the landscape, from camping sites with cosy cabins to hotels dedicated to total comfort. There are several ways to get to the area.
