Norway’s longest and deepest fjord stretches 205 kilometres from the Norwegian Sea to the tiny village of Skjolden. It’s renowned for its green-tinged colour, which results from the meltwater of nearby glaciers. The Sognefjord is fringed by picture-perfect Norwegian villages and lies on the doorstep of spectacular national parks.
Cruise between the charming towns that dot the shores of the Sognefjord and explore the emerald waters of the branching Lusterfjord, Fjærlandsfjord and Finnafjord. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Nærøyfjord is a must-see, framed by snow-capped mountains, dramatic waterfalls and traditional farms that cling to its steep sides.
You can wander between the beautifully preserved wooden houses of Lærdal or visit one of Norway’s most impressive stave churches at Borgund. Hikers are spoilt for choice in the Jotunheimen and Breheimen mountains while cyclists can ride the famous Rallarvegen from Haugastøl Station to the fjord-side village of Flåm
The Sognefjord can easily be accessed from Bergen Airport, which has flights to destinations across Europe, while Sogndal Airport has daily connections from both Bergen and Oslo. Buses and ferries connect destinations along its shores and Flåm Railway can be accessed from Myrdal Station.
