Travel slowly. Take your time.
The time to cycle along the fjord, hike through wild valleys, and explore the local culture.
Stop often. Enjoy the view.
Travel around and visit idyllic fjord villages like Vikøyri, Solvorn, Sogndal, Høyanger, Balestrand, Lærdalsøyri, and Årdal.
Or do you prefer a more modern alternative, like the boutique hotel 29/2 Aurland?
Practice “slow living” in the fjord village Aurland, which is also known for both organic veggies – and a very special shoe …
Have you noticed that the water in the innermost part of the fjords often look emerald green?
It’s a good idea to start with a tour of the Breheimsenteret glacier centre in Jostedalen or The Norwegian glacier museum in Fjærland.
After all this exercise, the treasures of the sea will taste gooood!
Order something special to accompany it – like a local cider.
The climate around the fjords gives the local food an extra edge: Apples, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and juices tastes excellent here. So does the goat cheeses and cured meats.
You can get memorable experiences through the train window, too.
You can take the Flåm Railway as a part of your Sognefjorden in a nutshell roundtrip.
Flåm is also the final destination on the scenic bike route Rallarvegen – and for a 1,381-metre-long zip line!
Now, meet the Vikings! The authentic Viking village Njardarheimr in Gudvangen is built to scale and houses real-life modern Vikings.
Make sure to join one of the guided tours of the village. You’ll learn all there is to know about the Viking culture.
If you’re travelling by car, follow the Norwegian Scenic Routes across the mountains Sognefjellet and Gaularfjellet.
Or the “snow road” across Aurlandsfjellet, where you’ll find the breathtaking viewpoint Stegastein.
Sognefjord has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.
