The Fjord Norway area is said to be one of the most most beautiful destinations in the world. Experience all the highlights of the Sognefjord area – often described as "The King of the Fjords" – in one and the same round trip.
The Sognefjord is called the King of the fjords for a good reason: it is not only the longest fjord in Norway and the second longest in the world, it is also an area of exceptional natural beauty.
Spring comes early in the fjords and maybe the best time to experience the spring in the fjord is from end of April and through May.
The landscape comes to life in spring – the mountains are still snowcapped and with the snow melting the waterfalls are full and dramatic flushing down the mountain side. At no time during the year is the landscape more alive than in spring. The Sognefjord is a truly beautiful sight, in autumn as well as spring. The area offers fantastic cultural landscapes for walks, not to mention the chance to sample exciting locally produced food and drink.
To make sure you don’t miss out on the best sights, try the popular round trip Sognefjord in a Nutshell.
